Mexico sets shelters as volcano shakes, spews ash

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Authorities are setting up shelters in central Mexico as they prepare for a possible big eruption of a volcano near Mexico City.

Seismic activity has increased at the more than 17,000-foot volcano. It shook Saturday night, sometimes spewing glowing rock over the crater.

Officials have closed off a seven-square-mile zone around the volcano and soldiers and federal police have been deployed to the area.
