The official number of those missing now stands at 192, a preliminary figure because nobody knows how many people were on the mountain when El Fuego erupted on Sunday around midday.

Rescue workers say it is hard to imagine how anybody caught up in the churning clouds of volcanic material that reached up to 700 degrees centigrade could have survived.

Only 23 of the bodies recovered so far have been identified.

"Nobody is going to be able to get them out or say how many are buried here", Efrain Suarez said, standing amid the smoking holes dotting what used to be the village of San Miguel Los Lotes on the flanks of the mountain.

"Lavas can be deadly and risky, but they usually move at a more predictable rate and don't spread out as quickly across the land, so it can usually be escaped from before people lose their life", Rubin said.

The National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology (Insivumeh) in Guatemala has reported that lava flow formed on the north side of the Pacaya Volcano.

The U.S. military was expected to fly children burned by hot ash and volcanic debris to the Galveston Shriners Hospital pediatric burn center in Galveston, Texas.

It is not clear how many bodies or body parts were removed from San Miguel Los Lotes on Wednesday.

One of the more glaring differences surrounding news of the two eruptions is Guatemala's death toll.

The small community on the slopes of the volcano was largely destroyed when the mountain erupted Sunday, sending superheated volcanic debris rushing down. Smoke from the still-hot debris below rises from holes in the hellish terrain.

She explained there is a great need for clothing and mattresses because shelters are not equipped with them and she urged people to pray for Guatemala and its people. "And if heavy machinery comes in they will be torn apart".

Iyawa, who is also Nigeria's Ambassador to Mexico, and the non-resident ambassador to the Republic of Panama, in a condolence letter, said Buhari considered Guatemala one of Nigeria's most important allies in Central America.

Firefighters' spokesperson Julio Sanchez said Tuesday that 72 hours after Sunday's eruption there will be little chance of finding anyone alive.
