Guatemala: At least 99 people were killed in the eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego volcano, which buried several villages on its southern flank, authorities said Wednesday.

The National Forensic Sciences Agency said in a report that morgues had received the remains of 99 people killed as a result of the eruption.

So far only 28 of the dead have been identified, it said.


Some 200 people were still missing, amid fears of a new blowup of the 3,763-meter (12,346-foot) volcano.
