Mount Sinabung, located in Indonesia’s Karo regency, sits on the most active earthquake belt in the world – the Pacific Ring of Fire. No one is believed to have been killed or injured by last night’s eruption. Locals were told to stay at least 4.3 miles (7km) away from the Sinabung earlier this year amid fears of a deadly eruption.
