A tsunami killed at least 168 people and injured 745 on the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra, a spokesperson for the disaster mitigation agency told media.


Scientists from Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics agency said it could have been caused by undersea landslides from the eruption of Anak Krakatau, a volcanic island formed over years from the nearby Krakatau volcano. They also cited tidal waves caused by the full moon.
