Hundreds of people have fled their homes around Indonesia's Mount Sinabung volcano after a series of eruptions over the past four days.

The volcano, which has been active since September 2013, erupted in February killing 16 people and forcing thousands to evacuate their homes on the western island of Sumatra. No casualties have been reported this week.
