One of Guatemala's most active volcanos, Pacaya, increased in activity Wednesday with the launch of volcanic material at high altitude and ash dispersed up to 25 kilometers from its crater.

The high level of activity expelled "ballistics" up to 500 meters above its crater, the National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology said. EFE-EPA
