The lava is expected to come out of the volcano until the end of reserves of hot melts.

The volcano that erupted on a small island off the coast of Yemen has again begun spewing lava and ash into the air, Yemen's navy said on Wednesday. The volcano lies on the island of Jazirt Al-Tair in the Red Sea, about 130 kilometres from Yemen. Inactive for over a century, the volcano first erupted on Sunday after several earthquakes were felt on the island. The volcano has so far produced one kilometre long lava flows and blackened the water within 10 kilometres of the island. Six Yemeni soldiers, part of a garrison of 50 stationed on the island, were killed in the eruption, while another 15 were injured. On Monday Yemen�s coastguard said shipping had been unaffected by the eruption.
