DR Congo orders Goma evacuation after Mount Nyiragongo erupts

A volcanic eruption near the city of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo has forced thousands of people to flee for safety.
At least five people died in a car crash in the panic.
Neighbouring Rwanda has opened its border to let in those fleeing the eruption.
Initially, scientists said the lava flow was heading away from Goma, but now they’ve warned that new fractures have put two million residents at risk.
