A U.S. Air Force C-17 has carried six Guatemalan children who were badly burned in a volcanic eruption to Texas for treatment.

The U.S. Embassy in Guatemala says they'll be treated at the Shriner's Hospital in Galveston.

The children were among the victims of Sunday's eruption of the Volcano of Fire, which buried nearly villages in superheated ash and debris. Guatemalan officials say that 99 people are confirmed dead, with many more still missing.
