A person who was being treated in hospital after the eruption of New Zealand’s White Island volcano has died, bringing the official death toll to 16.
The victim, who has not been identified, died in Australia after being repatriated for treatment.
About 20 people remain in intensive care with severe burns.
Meanwhile, recovery teams returned to the volcanic island on Sunday but were unable to locate two remaining bodies.
Eight police search and rescue personnel were deployed for 75 minutes to an area in which at least one of the bodies was believed to be.
Police said they remained committed to retrieving the bodies and that police and military divers would continue to search the waters around White Island, also known by its Maori name of Whakaari.
