A passenger arriving in India from Thailand has been detained at the airport after customs officers found a month-old leopard cub in his luggage.

Customs officers at Chennai airport were alerted when they heard noises coming from his bag, which was found to contain the 2.2lb (1kg) cub hidden in a plastic grocery basket.

 Government officials say at least 222 people have been killed and 843 injured after a tsunami hit coastal towns on Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.\

 “The tsunami was not triggered by an earthquake,” said one official. “It’s possible that it was triggered by an underwater landslide due to the eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau [that’s Child of Krakatoa]. At the same time there was high tide because of the full moon. So there was a combination of natural phenomena, tsunami and high tide.”
