Five people have died and eight are still missing after an eruption on a volcanic island in New Zealand, the country’s prime minister has said. Jacinda Ardern confirmed that New Zealanders and tourists from Australia, the US, Britain, China, Germany and Malaysia were among the missing and injured. The police do not expect to find more survivors on White Island, where two explosions in quick succession sent up a huge plume of ash that could be seen from the North Island. About 31 people remain in hospital after three people were discharged overnight. In total, 47 people visited the island on Monday. On Tuesday morning Australia’s prime minister, Scott Morrison, said three Australians were believed to be among the dead and eight were missing. He said 24 Australians were among those on White Island – 13 of whom were in hospital and 11 unaccounted for. “This is a very, very hard day for a lot of Australian families whose loved ones have been caught up in this terrible, terrible tragedy,” he told reporters in Sydney. “I fear there is worse news to come over the course of perhaps today or over the next few days.”
