Six killed in Columbian volcano landslide

CNN has reported that six people were killed by a volcano eruption landslide that occurred Thursday in Columbia.

Officials reported Sunday that four of the victims were children. Three people are currently missing. The Nevado del Huila volcano destroyed at least 20 homes. The area in which it occurred contains a reservation for Nasa indigenous groups.

Nearly 300 people have been evacuated from their homes. Fox News reported that although they did not know of any casualties, 8,000 people were ordered to evacuate.

This particular volcano erupted in 1993 and killed nine people.
