Indonesia tsunami update: Death toll rises to 373, with over 1,400 injured




The death toll from the Indonesia tsunami has risen to at least 373, with over 1,400 people injured, many of them seriously.

The tsunami, which was caused by a volcanic eruption, hit coastal areas of the islands of Java and Sumatra on Saturday night. No tsunami warning was issued because the area does not have appropriate equipment.

Rescue efforts are underway amidst fears of further tsunamis due to ongoing volcanic activity.
