PHOTOS: Mexican Volcano Erupts

By  | 

(AP) - The Popocatepetl volcano is spewing lava, ash and steam near Santiago Xalitzintla, Mexico.

Mexico's National Center for Disaster Prevention reported there had been three explosive eruptions at the peak late Friday and early Saturday - events that usually toss glowing-hot rock on the volcano's flanks.

An Associated Press photographer captured the impressive show put on by the mountain. See the images at this CBS News link.
