A volcano erupted near Saba Island in the Red Sea on Monday, said fishermen from Salif port city in the west of Yemen.
The fishermen said that the volcano can be seen 3 hours away from its center and that it has been popping up red lava that reached 20-30 meters high.
The fishermen said this was the first volcano they ever seen in the region.

“I find it interesting that there was a fairly substantial earthquake cluster (mostly mag 4+) about a year or so ago in the red sea, followed by the eruption in Eritrea of the volcano Nabro (I think that was the name) last summer and now this,” says Tim.
“The rift valley is getting restless…”
