Aussie dies climbing Indonesian volcano
(06-10 15:16)

An Australian man has died from a suspected asthma attack after setting out to trek up Indonesia's second-highest volcano.
John-Paul Lipscombe, 53, was a short way into the hike up Mount Rinjani, on Lombok island in the center of the archipelago, when he collapsed, said police chief I Wayan Wartia.
''He had walked two kilometers when he suddenly collapsed and died,'' he said.
Lipscombe was one of 10 hikers on the trek.
Mount Rinjani, which is 3,726 meters tall, is a popular trekking spot with tourists.
An Italian tourist was killed when she fell into a ravine while climbing the volcano in 2010.--AFP
