Advert Travel Gazette

A tsunami apparently caused by the eruption of an island volcano has killed at least 222 people around Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.

The wave, which struck at night without warning during a busy holiday weekend, swept away hotels, hundreds of houses and a group of people attending a beach concert.

Some 843 people have been reported injured and a further 28 missing when the tsunami hit on Saturday night following an eruption of the Anak Krakatau volcano.
