    Indonesia's emergency agency has expanded the evacuation area around a volcano in Bali amid fears it could erupt.

    The Mount Agung volcano, or Gunung Agung, about 70 kilometres from Kuta on the holiday island last erupted in 1963 killing more than 1,100 people.

    Indonesia's National Disaster Mitigation Agency warned residents and tourists they must stay at least six kilometres from the crater and 7.5 kilometres away to the north, south-east and south-west.

    The agency said there had been increased seismic activity as well as 50-metre-high blasts from the volcano's centre.

    There has been an increase in activity since August and it is the second time the alert level has been increased in less than a week.

    Nearby residents have been told to prepare in case the alert level is raised again and they are ordered to evacuate.
