More bodies found at Japan volcano – Video

Japanese authorities said Wednesday that 12 more bodies have been located near the summit of Mount Ontake, bringing the official death toll to 48.

Since the surprise eruption on Saturday, volcanic tremors have been continuously detected, and smoke is still coming out of the volcano.

Search and recovery efforts, which had been halted due to concerns about toxic gas and the possibility of another eruption, resumed today.
