World News: Indonesia's Mount Semeru smoulders after violent eruption Updated: 2021-12-06 09:41:32 KST

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now.'

At least 14 people are dead, and over a hundred others injured, after Mount Semeru, a volcano located in Indonesia's East Java province erupted on Saturday.
According to the country's National Board for Disaster Management on Sunday, the eruption left dozens in a serious condition, after it covered villages with ash and left people running from billowing clouds of debris.
Five of the victims have yet to be identified, while nine others are reported missing.
Some 13-hundred people have been displaced by the eruption, as hundreds of houses have been completely destroyed, with 33 schools damaged, as well.
Officials say the situation in the region remains dangerous, as pyroclastic flows, a mix of ash, rock and volcanic gases can be much more dangerous than lava.
Authorities fear there could be more casualties, as a number of miners working near the site of the eruption have yet to be found.
Standing at more than 3,650 meters high, Mount Semeru is the tallest mountain on Java.

What started out as another morning of protest for citizens of Yangon against the brutal crackdown by the military, turned deadly Sunday morning, when Myanmar security forces in a car rammed into the anti-coup protest, killing five people, and leaving dozens other injured.
Photos and videos circulating on social media show a vehicle crashing through the protesters, with witnesses saying the car increased speed as it got closer to the protesters.
Witnesses say that a handful of people, some who were carrying banners in support of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi were hit, as soldiers then jumped out of the car and began shooting, as protesters began fleeing.
Sunday's protest was one of at least three being held in Yangon, Myanmar's biggest city, as the rallies were held a day ahead of an expected verdict in the first of several criminal cases against the country's civilian leader.
More than ten months since the coup, the military has reportedly killed more than 13-hundred people.

CNN fired its new anchor Chris Cuomo on Saturday, after "additional information" came to light during an investigation into his efforts to help his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo deal with allegations of sexual misconduct.
Cuomo who hosted the station's most-watched prime-time news show, admitted back in May that he had broken some of the network's rules in advising his brother how to handle the allegations from a public relations perspective.
In journalism, it's considered a breach of ethics to use one's position to advocate for a personal cause or to conduct investigations for personal reasons.
