Steam rises from the White Island volcano following the December 9 volcanic eruption, in Whakatane on December 11, 2019. The smouldering New Zealand volcano that killed at least six people is still too dangerous for emergency teams to recover bodies from, police said on December 11, warning that many tourists who escaped the island were so badly burned they were not yet out of danger.
