Indonesian Tsunami Kills Dozens; More Casualties Expected

The New York Times and other sources are reporting that a 7.7-magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami that pounded villages on remote islands off western Indonesia, killing at least 23 people and leaving more than 160 others missing. The earthquake reportedly took place along the same fault along the west coast of Sumatra Island that caused the 2004 tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people in numerous countries.

The death toll from the quake late Monday, which struck 13 miles beneath the ocean floor, is expected to climb throughout the day.
