Indonesia earthquake and tsunami: Death toll surpasses 830

At least 832 people died on the island of Sulawesi due to powerful earthquake and tsunami. The death toll is expected to climb on Monday.

 

Rescue operations are still underway.

 

 

 

Two days ago, a 7.5 magnitude quake hit the island and 3-metre-high waves crashed onto its northern shore.

 

Indonesian Disaster Management Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho estimates 2.4 million people were affected by Friday’s earthquake.
