Lava flows from the Momotombo Volcano, as seen from the rural community of Papalonal in Leon, La Paz Centro, Nicaragua on December 2nd 2015. The previously dormant volcano emitted glowing rocks after unleashing gas and ash. In 1610 an eruption of Momotombo destroyed Leon and the city was subsequently rebuilt in its current location further to the west. Credit: AP Photo/ Esteban Felix
