Eleven hikers were found dead on Monday and 12 others are considered missing after the eruption of Indonesia's Marapi volcano, with rescuers carrying three survivors - injured and burned - off the mountain on foot. Emergency services said they had been working through the night to find dozens of hikers stranded on Mount Marapi on the island of Sumatra after a 2,891-metre-high ash tower, taller than the <>,<>-metre-high volcano itself, erupted into the sky on Sunday.

The dead hikers were found near the crater as the eruption dropped ash and volcanic debris on nearby villages, according to a local relief official.

Three were found alive, while 49 have already descended from the volcano, though some with burns and fractures, the official said. "The injured are carried down by arms, the rescuers take turns to carry them down to the valley. We can't do an aerial search with a helicopter because the eruption is ongoing," said the head of the local rescue agency Abdul Malik, who added that about 120 people were involved in the operation.
