Villagers sit in the back of a truck as they are evacuated to a temporary evacuation center after their village was hit by ash and mud from an eruption of Mount Sinabung following a further series of eruptions of Mount Sinabung on January 11, 2014 in Sigarang Garang, Karo District, North Sumatra, Indonesia. The number of displaced people has increased to around 25,000 in Western Indonesia as Mount Sinabung continues to spew ash and smoke after a series of several eruptions since September. Eleven deaths have now been recorded as a result of the eruptions with hundreds more falling ill. Officials expect the number of evacuees to rise as volcanic activity remains high.
