Guatemala Volcano’s Death Toll, Now at 65, Is Likely to Rise

The volcano sits less than 30 miles from the capital, Guatemala City, which has a population of about three million people.

Reuters quoted officials as saying on Sunday that 3,100 people had been evacuated and nearly 300 injured. The capital’s airport was also closed because of the danger that ash posed to aircraft, Reuters reported, citing Guatemala’s Civil Aviation Authority.
