RAW: BBC journo, camerawoman caught in middle of Etna eruption

A BBC journalist and camerawoman on assignment at Sicily’s Mount Etna volcano were among the injured when it exploded on Thursday.
Their film shows an explosion of steam followed by a second explosion of boiling rocks and people running away from the scene.
Ten people were reported injured.
Tourists, who were drawn to Etna to observe the spectacle of the active volcano erupting, were caught by surprise when its flowing magma hit thick snow, causing a phreatic explosion that rained rock and other material down upon them.
