At least 10 people were injured in a volcanic explosion in Italy.

One of the wonders of the ancient world exploded into modern life. 

Mount Etna spewed lava and molten rock almost 200 feet into the air. The lava collided with the snow to cause an explosion.

Four of the 10 victims were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
