Mount Etna erupts for first time this year

Officials report no danger to the towns around the volcano, one of the most active in the world.

Europe's most active volcano has erupted for the first time this year, sending a tower of bright lava into the sky.

Mount Etna, on the Italian island of Sicily, has been largely dormant for the past two years.

Authorities have reported no danger to the nearby towns and there has been no disruption to air traffic. Its last major eruption was in 1992.
