MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia (AP) - Indonesia says the number of people killed by its most volatile volcano has climbed to 191.
Muhammad Anshori, a disaster official, says the earlier toll of 153 did not take into account those who died of respiratory problems, heart attacks and other illness linked to Mount Merapi.
The volcano, one of the world's most active, roared back to life two weeks ago, spewing clouds of hot ash and gas into the air almost continuously, with lava, rocks and debris cascading down its slopes.
