Poisonous fumes from an Indonesian volcano killed six school children who were camping on the mountain and sickened several others, a doctor said Sunday. The incident happened Saturday close to one of the two craters on Salak Volcano, which lies just south of the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, said Jusuf Fauzan, a doctor at a hospital in the nearby town of Bogor. He said families of the victims had refused permission to perform autopsies, but the dead were believed to have been poisoned by gases from the crater. The six were found with blood and foam on their mouths and noses, he said.
