Indonesian residents in Palu on Wednesday lamented the loss of their infrastructure that was damaged six days ago when a deadly 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck Sulawesi island. Outside the city of Palu's iconic Ramayana mall, officials took pictures of the damage and worried about how the region would recover.
The official death toll from the quake that struck the west coast of the island of Sulawesi last Friday stood at 1,200. Officials fear the toll could soar, as most of the confirmed dead have come from Palu, and losses in remote areas largely cut off since Friday have yet to be determined.
