The Catania operation centre of Italy's volcanology institute confirmed that three of its experts had been on Mount Etna and some had suffered injuries in the explosion.

He said the explosion, which happened at 11:43 a.m. local time (6:43 a.m. ET), "threw pieces of lava in the air and ten people in the area were hit and injured, none seriously".
