    Six dead eight remain missing after active volcano in New Zealand erupts

    Apparently there had been signs of increased geologic activity in the recent past. Many survivors are suffering from severe burns. With the benefit of hindsight easy to say the tours to the small island off the coast should have been cancelled.

    It is indeed easy to say that, and you do not even need hindsight. Who in their right mind would go on a tourist trip into the crater of an active Vulcano?
