A fresh spurt of ash belched from Eritrea’s Nabro volcano despite a statement from the French-based Volcano Ash Advisory Center that the East African eruption had ended.

The stratovolcano roared to life on June 12 for the first time in recorded history. Ash has since fallen over a broad swath of neighboring northern Ethiopia, resulting in at least seven deaths as well as food shortages due to destroyed crops.
