Moments After Eruption Hit New Zealand Tourist Site

Several people are unaccounted for after a volcanic eruption hit a New Zealand tourist destination, local police have said.

Tourists were seen walking inside the rim of the White Island crater just moments before the eruption. “At this stage, it’s believed that around 100 people were on or around the island at the time and some of those at this stage are unaccounted for,” New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told a press conference.
