Iceland raised its alert over the nation's largest volcanic system to red on Saturday, banning all air traffic in the area, after detecting a small sub-glacial eruption. A major explosion at the Bardarbunga volcano could signal a replay of the global travel chaos triggered when another Icelandic peak blew four years ago, creating a massive ash cloud across Europe. "There is an ongoing eruption beneath the glacial surface, probably a small eruption which has not been enough to melt the ice cap," Iceland Met Office official Theodor Hervasson told AFP. Police said a number of tourists were being evacuated in an area located north of the Bardarbunga volcano, which lies in southeast Iceland.
