VTV.vn -The death toll from Guatemala's Fuego volcano rose to at least 75 on Tuesday, with at least 192 missing, amid a new round of strong explosions that scattered ash over a wide area and forced authorities to issue new evacuation orders.

Guatemala's national disaster agency ordered evacuations and said that hot gas and molten rock were streaming from the volcano, which produced its biggest eruption in more than four decades on Sunday, showering ash on a wide area and sending lava flows through nearby towns.

Previously, the eruption on Sunday sent columns of ash and smoke 10 km into the sky, dusting several regions with ash. Thousands of people have been evacuated.
