Opposition politicians in Guatemala are calling on Sergio Cabanas, the national coordinator for the Disaster Reduction agency, or Conred, to step down accusing him of failing to heed early warnings about a possible eruption at the Fuego volcano ahead of Sunday's disaster.

One picture taken by a European satellite, the Sentinel-2, on Monday (June 4) showed the centre of the volcano as a bright, red spot with lava coming up and flowing down as a brown mass.

The volcano's eruption has left dozens of people injured and more than 12,000 evacuated, with over 3,600 in shelters, according to figures from the country's disaster agency.

Associated Press journalists in Guatemala have seen workers carrying five stretchers of human remains out of San Miguel Los Lotes near the Volcano of Fire.

It is not clear how many bodies or body parts were removed from San Miguel Los Lotes on Wednesday.

"It rained very hard yesterday". The confirmed death toll has climbed to 99.

Guatemalan authorities on Thursday requested worldwide assistance in dealing with aftermath of last week's violent volcanic eruption.


Nobody has heard from them since Sunday's eruption of the Volcano of Fire.

A group of police officers saw what the family was doing and came to lend shovels and help with the digging.

Their families will also get on-site housing.

Oscar Chavez trekked over a mountain Thursday with his father and younger brother.

A 72-hour window - after which rescuers said it would be highly unlikely to find any survivors - expired the previous day. Late Wednesday a U.S. Air Force C-17 carried six Guatemalan children who were badly burned for treatment at the Shriner's Hospital in Galveston, Texas.

Rains have been hitting the area and the agency says climatic conditions as well as the still-hot volcanic material deposited on the villages makes it risky for the rescuers. The White House said the USA was sending emergency aid "to help meet food, water and sanitation needs for the affected population".
