18th November 2013 - Mount Etna Erupts

The volcano Mount Etna on the Italian island of Sicily erupted on Friday. The eruption was not violent and no homes were evacuated. This volcano is caused by the African plate colliding with and sinking below the Eurasian plate. Italy has a number of other active volcanoes and also suffers from earthquakes. There is a BBC report here.
