Investigators examining a piece of debris suspected to belong to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been forced to flee the site, according to news.com.au.
An emergency evacuation is underway on the island of Reunion where Le Piton de la Fournaise has recorded unusual activity.
Scientists at island's volcanic observatory, the OVPF, warned an eruption was "imminent and probable".
The evacuation bizarrely comes just hours after it was reported the suspected wreckage of missing passenger jet Malaysian Airlines MH370 washed up on the beach.
The volcano, situated on the south-east side of La Reunion, is a World Heritage site.
Up to 10 Malaysian aviation experts reportedly arrived at La Reunion only to be evacuated.
