Indonesia tsunami death toll hits 373, with 1,400 injured


The death toll from Saturday’s tsunami in Indonesia has reached 373, with more than 1,400 people injured, as officials warned that the number of fatalities could rise further.

Indonesian military and rescue teams fanned out across a stretch of coastline hoping to find survivors of the tsunami, which was triggered by a landslide from a volcano.

Over 1,400 people were injured, and about 12,000 residents had to move to higher ground, with a high-tide warning extended to Wednesday.
