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.

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".
