Indonesia, Dec 27 (AP/UNB) — Indonesia has widened the no-go zone around an island volcano that triggered a tsunami on the weekend, killing at least 430 people in Sumatra and Java.
The country's volcanology agency said Thursday that the Anak Krakatau volcano's alert status had been raised to the second highest level and the exclusion zone more than doubled to a 5-kilometer (3-mile) radius.
