Indonesia tsunami: 222 dead and 'many missing' after Anak Krakatau erupts – as it happened

At least 222 people have been killed and 843 injured after a tsunami hit the coast of Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.
Twenty-eight people are missing and authorities expect the death toll to rise as many affected areas have not yet been reached.
The tsunami hit at about 9.30pm on Saturday night, Indonesian time, which is around 2.30pm GMT. There was no pre-warning given.
The tsunami is thought to have been caused by the eruption of the Anak Krakatoa volcano, which may have triggered underwater landslides.
Indonesia’s disaster management agency said 556 houses, nine hotels, 60 culinary stalls and 350 boats were known to have been damaged.
