New Etna volcano eruption in Sicily shuts down Catania airport

Sicily's Etna volcano recorded a new eruption of lava that also expelled a cloud of ash over the city of Catania, Italy on Sunday, forcing the closure of its airport in the middle of high tourist season. 

Considered the tallest and most active volcano in Europe, Etna has erupted frequently in the past 500,000 years. Its last major eruption was in 1992.
