Photos: Volcano eruption in Congo sends people fleeing

Mount Nyiragongo unleashed lava that destroyed homes on the outskirts of Goma, but witnesses said Sunday that the city of 2 million had been mostly spared after the volcano erupted at night and sent thousands fleeing in panic. Authorities said at least five people had died in a road crash while trying to leave Goma, but cautioned it was too early to give a death toll in the hardest-hit communities. More than 500 homes had been destroyed, according to Constant Ndima, military governor for the affected region.
