Bali volcano spews ash; Lombok airport closes US prosecutor­s’ letter spurred orders in self-driving car case


A volcano on the Indonesian island of Bali has rumbled to life with eruptions that dusted nearby resorts and villages with ash and forced the closure of the small internatio­nal airport on neighborin­g Lombok island as towering gray plumes drifted east. Mount Agung erupted on Saturday evening and three times early Sunday, lighting its cone with an orange glow and sending ash 4,000 meters into the atmosphere. It is still gushing and the ash clouds have forced the closure of Lombok island’s airport until at least 6 am Monday, an official at the airport said.

US District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco disclosed on Wednesday that he had received a letter from Justice Department attorneys about the case, which is set for trial in December. The judge did not reveal the letter’s contents. REUTERS<
