    Officials in Indonesia have speculated that the landslide that caused the tsunami was probably behind volcanic activity in a nearby area.

    Officials pointed to the active volcano "Anak Krakatoa", which is almost halfway between the islands of Java and Sumatra, and has been blowing ash and lava for months.

    The meteorological, climatic and geophysics agency said the volcano erupted again after 9 pm on Saturday, while the tsunami struck at about 9:30 am local time.

    The agency said the tsunami was "due to a landslide under the sea, caused by volcanic activity in Anak Krakatoa."

    A video of the eruption of the volcano that caused the tsunami was spread on social media sites, while Sky News Arabia could not confirm its authenticity.

    Ben Van der Bloigmeg, a seismologist and professor at the University of Michigan, said the tsunami may have been caused by a "partial collapse" caused by the volcano Anak Krakatoa.

    "Any disruption at the foot of an active volcano can cause a rocky collapse that moves a large amount of water, creating a tsunami, which can be very strong," he said. "It's like a bag of sand suddenly falling into a basin full of water."

    The eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in 1883 led to giant tsunamis, killing some 36,000 people.
     Officials and media said on Sunday that the tsunami had killed at least 222 people and injured hundreds on the islands of Java and Sumatra in the wake of a landslide.

    A spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency, Sotobu Boru Nugroho, said hundreds of homes and buildings were severely damaged by the late tsunami on Saturday at Sunda Strait.

    Thousands of people were forced to move to higher ground, with no estimates of the number of missing persons.
