At least three people are dead in Indonesia from a tsunami set in motion by a powerful earthquake deep beneath the Indian Ocean.

The six-foot-high wall of water smashed into a beach resort on the island of Java today.

A witness says all the houses along the beach have been destroyed.

People fled up a hill to escape the wave.

The quake measured seven-point-two and swayed tall buildings in Indonesia's capital, Jakarta.
