Toxic air and gases hamper search for volcano victims

A search has failed to locate the bodies of the last two victims of a volcano eruption in New Zealand last Monday that claimed the lives of at least 15 people, most of whom were tourists.

Two four-person teams landed on the volcanic White Island by helicopter early on Sunday and searched a location thought to be where one of the bodies might be.

The teams were wearing heavy protective clothing due to the toxic air and gases present on the island as a result of the eruption.
