Indonesia's Mount Merapi volcano has killed 191 people since it began erupting late last month, with more than 340,000 people in makeshift camp

Media sources say that the volcano is still dangerous as eruptions and gas clouds continue to force people to abandon their houses with fear of another big eruption. The end is not yet in sight

Latest reports state that 279,000 people are displaced. The total population affected is 4 million. The danger zone has been extended to 20 km around Merapi's crater.
