TANJUNG LESUNG, Indonesia (AP) -- Indonesia's disaster agency says the death toll from the weekend tsunami has climbed to 373.

Disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said Monday that 128 others were missing in the disaster, with 1,459 injured.

The waves washed ashore along western Java and southern Sumatra islands Saturday night following a volcanic eruption.

Hundreds of military personnel and volunteers combed debris-strewn beaches Monday looking for victims.
