SUGIHWARAS, Indonesia (AP) - A major volcanic eruption on Indonesia's Java Island has killed at least three people, as authorities evacuate more than 100,000 people and close seven airports.

Mount Kelud erupted earlier today, spewing ash and debris some 12 miles into the air.

One farmer who lives three miles from the volcano's crater says the eruption sounded "like thousands of bombs exploding."
