 Mexican volcano Popocatepetl spewed a cloud of black ash and lava almost 3,2 kilometres (2 miles) high into the air on Thursday, the National Disaster Prevention Centre said, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

"An eruption involving a moderate amount of ash was registered at 6:33 a.m. The pillar reached 3 kilometres into the air", the agency tweeted.

The authorities prohibited anyone from coming closer than 12 kilometers to Popocatepetl, which means a "smoking mountain" in the language of the indigenous Aztec population.
