A new rift eruption at Etna?

Etna
At first it seemed like the new eruptions at Mt. Etna (Italy) were petering out rather quickly. Instead, now it seems that there are fears that a new rift might be opening on Etna, which might mean more vents for lava to erupt. Apparently there has also been some seismic activity to go along with the new eruption and rifting, which shouldn’t be too surprising.
It is also noted that Stromboli, another one of the Aeolian volcanoes, is erupting now as well. Busy time for Italian volcanoes!
