Hundreds flee over glacier volcano fears


Hundreds of people have been evacuated from near a restless volcano in Iceland amid signs of a second eruption.

Seismic activity suggested movement from under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier, authorities said.

The volcano under the glacier last erupted March 20 after almost 200 years of silence. Flash floods are feared with a second eruption.
