Eruption of a mud volcano in Java

On May 28, 2006, following a drilling error, the Indonesian oil company Lapindo triggered the eruption of a mud volcano.
A year later, the volcano continues to expand and the damage amounts to a billion dollars, 60,000 refugees, 27 deaths, 600 hectares drowned under toxic mud including a town and 3 villages.
Scientists believe the eruption is out of control and could last 35 years.
In the remains of the posh town of Perum Tae, the poorest victims turn into looters trying to recover a few copper wires or various metal objects which they will resell to scrap dealers.
