Denpasar (Indonesia): A volcano on Indonesia's tourist island of Bali has shot a new burst of hot ash into the air.

The Volcanology and Geological Mitigation agency says Mount Agung erupted for about three minutes Sunday, spewing white clouds of smoke and ash more than 700 meters (2,300 feet) into the air.

The eruption of the 3,030-meter (9,940-foot) volcano didn't cause more evacuations, and its alert status remains at the second-highest level.

Scientists are warning tourists to stay away from the danger zone in a 4-kilometer (2.5-mile) radius from the crater.

A spokesman at Ngurah Rai International Airport, Arie Ahsanurrohim, says flights are operating normally.

Sunday's eruption comes after Mount Anak Krakatau, a volcanic island in the Sunda Straits, erupted and collapsed last weekend, triggering a deadly tsunami that killed 431 people. (AP)
