The death toll from last week’s explosive eruption of the Fuego volcano has risen to 99 after more bodies were found Wednesday, officials said.

Guatemala's National Forensic Sciences Institute (INACIF) said the number of known casualties was up by 24 from 75 as of late Tuesday.

The Fuego eruption, the nation’s most violent volcano eruption in over a century, took place on Sunday. Almost 200 were still unaccounted for on Tuesday.
