Olafur Grimsson: Eruption is only 'small rehearsal'

The eruption of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland, and the travel chaos it has caused, is only a "small rehearsal", according to Iceland's President Olafur Grimsson.

The larger Katla volcano, right next to it, usually erupts every century, and the last eruption was in 1918, he said.

Broadcast on Monday 19 April 2010.
