Joy and despair in Europa League (updated)

Apollon players celebrate their victory over Lokomotiv

By Andreas Vou

It was a night of the starkest of contrasts for Apollon and Omonia against the two sides from Moscow as the Limassol club pulled off a sensational 1-4 victory against Lokomotiv while Omonia suffered injury-time agony against Dynamo in a 1-2 loss.
After just two minutes, it had looked as though Gaossou Fofana had put Omonia ahead but it was chalked off for offside. Their 2-2 draw in Moscow last week had given them a narrow...

Warning sign blocks  road to Bardarbunga volcano in north-west region of Vatnajokull glacier

By Robert Robertsson

Ice over Iceland’s rumbling Bardarbunga volcano has melted to reveal a row of 1-km wide “cauldrons”, possibly due to a sub-glacial eruption, the country’s meteorological office said late on Wednesday.

Rumblings at Iceland’s largest volcano system for about a week have raised worries of an eruption that could spell trouble for air travel. In 2010, an ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano closed much of Europe’s airspace for six days.

The Met Office said on its website...
