Debris from damaged buildings is seen on a street on Carita beach on December 23, 2018, after the area was hit by a tsunami on December 22 that was triggered by an eruption of the Anak Krakatoa volcano. A tsunami triggered by a volcanic eruption killed 43 people and injured hundreds more as it slammed without warning into tourist beaches and coastal areas around Indonesia‘s Sunda Strait on the night about 9.30 pm local time (1430 GMT) on December 22, sending panicked holiday makers and residents fleeing.
