Indonesia tsunami: Rescuers dig through rubble for survivors

9/30/2018 10:28:00 AM

Tehran (KNA) - Rescuers have been digging by hand in the frantic search for survivors in the Indonesian city of Palu, which is reeling from an earthquake and tsunami.

At least 408 people have been killed but there are fears the death toll could rise significantly as workers reach areas closer to the epicentre. 

Search efforts are being hampered by blocked roads and a collapsed bridge.

The Red Cross estimates that more than 1.6 million people have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
