Lava from eastern Congo volcano reaches Goma airport, says volcanologist

KINSHASA, May 22 (Reuters) - Lava from a volcano erupting in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is flowing south toward the city of Goma and has reached the airport on the edge of town, a volcanologist based in Goma said.

The volcanologist, Dario Tedesco, told Reuters a second fracture had opened in Mount Nyiragongo, allowing the lava to flow toward Goma. (Reporting by Hereward Holland; Writing by Aaron Ross; Editing by Andrea Ricci)
