Death Toll Climbs in Aftermath of Indonesian Earthquake

At least 62 people were killed after a 5.6-magnitude earthquake shook the West Java province of Indonesia on Monday, November 21, with hundreds injured and buildings damaged, officials said.

Indonesia’s Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency said the epicenter of the quake was about 10 km (six miles) southwest of Cianjur in West Java, with a depth of 10 km. The agency said there was no potential for a tsunami.

An official from the national disaster management agency told local media at a briefing that people were still buried under rubble and there were 1,773 damaged housing units.
