A volcano on the Indonesian holiday island of Bali erupted on Sunday, belching ash high into the air and over nearby villages as officials warned tourists to keep clear of the area.

Mount Agung has been erupting periodically since it rumbled back to life in 2017, when it grounded hundreds of flights and left 1,20,000 visitors stranded. On Sunday morning, the volcano sent ash skywards as it erupted for about three minutes, according to the country's volcanology centre.

"Residents near Mount Agung as well as climbers and tourists should not carry out any activity in the danger zone or within four-kilometre radius from the crater," the centre said. On December 22, an eruption from Anak Krakatoa triggered a tsunami, killing at least 426.
