Mount Etna blows its top - again!

Mount Etna

Europe's biggest volcano is rumbling once again.

Mount Etna, on the island of Sicily in Italy, has been spewing out lava, opening up a crater on the south eastern side of the volcano

It's the third time it has erupted in recent weeks, having already blown its top on 29 March and 11 April.

Some areas are covered in ashes, but people living nearby are staying in their homes for the time being, with no reports of evacuations.
