Indonesia's Mount Barujari volcano erupts, trapping tourists

More than 200 foreign tourists were feared trapped on an Indonesian volcano Wednesday after the peak erupted and sent a plume of ash 6,500 feet in the air, officials said. More than 1,000 people were evacuated after Mount Barujari erupted just before 3 p.m. Tuesday (3 a.m. ET), officials said. Rescuers initially were looking for at least 389 tourists — 333 of them foreigners — who had registered to climb the mountain since Sunday, according to a statement by the country's National Disaster Management Authority issued late Tuesday.
