Earthquakes in Congo stoke fear of second volcanic eruption



 An earthquake on the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda stoked fears a nearby volcano would erupt again three days after dozens of people were killed and villages were destroyed by lava.

 According to the United Nations over 5,000 people have been displaced by the eruption. More than half a million people have lost access to safe water, as lava destroyed one of the most important water supply sources, the International Federation of the Red Cross said.
