Ash spewing from a volcano on Indonesia’s main island of Java has sparked chaos for vacationers as airports close and international airlines cancel flights to tourist hotspot Bali, stranding thousands.
Government volcanologist Gede Suantika said the eruption has forced authorities to close five airports due to the risks posed by volcanic ash. The transport ministry has told airlines to avoid routes near the mountain.

Indonesia can count many milestones in its development trajectory. A lower rate of mortality for children under-five — from 85 out of 100 births in 1990, dropping to 31 in 2012 — is one of these achievements.
Unfortunately, stunting among children remains a major concern.
The fact that 8.4 million children or 37.2% of children under five in Indonesia are stunted should be of greater concern, given the lifelong consequences. Between 2010 and 2013, incidences of stunting increased from 35.6 to 37.2 percent.
