  1. Rising magma at Mount Nyiragongo alarms Congo's volcano-watchers

  2. Lava lake lights up the night sky on Mount Nyiragongo volcano, inside the Virunga National Park, near Goma, in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

  4. Volcano researcher King Birindwa (L) measures the size of a vent on the flank on Mount Nyiragongo. The World Bank cut funding amid embezzlement allegations, and now the Goma Volcano Observatory (OVG) are struggling to make even basic checks.

  5. Volcano researcher King Birindwa (C) sets up a device to measure the size of the crater on Mount Nyiragongo volcano.

  7. Volcano researcher Honore Ciraba takes a photograph of the lava lake on Mount Nyiragongo. “If we don't do it regularly, we won't know where the crater is expanding. The more magma that goes up into the crater, the more the crater expands.

  23. A lava lake and a mini cone inside the Mount Nyiragongo volcano crater spew gas into the sky. Volcano watchers worry that volcanic activity observed in the last five years mirrors that in the years preceding the 1977 and 2002 eruptions.
