A group of people living within kilometers of Mount Agung walked into the crater of the volcano on Friday, September 29, just as thousands were fleeing ahead of an expected eruption. According to the Sydney Morning Herald Balinese priest Jero Mangku Ada walked to the peak of the mountain to pray that the volcano would not erupt. Experts have said an eruption could be imminent. In pictures and video shared to Facebook, Ada can be seen at the volcano summit with others. In one picture he appears to be praying. According to The Guardian more than 140,000 people had been forced to evacuate. Credit: Facebook/Mangku Mokoh via Storyful
