Bali airport reopens as volcano rumbles

Bali airport reopens as volcano rumblesBy Sultan Ashori DENPASAR, Indonesia (Reuters) – The airport on Indonesia’s holiday island of Bali reopened on Friday after ash from a volcano forced a brief closure and the cancellation of more than 300 flights. Mount Agung in northeastern Bali has been rumbling to life intermittently since late last year and it began belching smoke and ash again on Thursday. It was shooting a column of ash more than 2,500 meters (8,200 feet) into the sky on Friday and officials said operations at Indonesia’s second-busiest airport would be reviewed every few hours.
