Indonesia calls off grim search for dead in quake-tsunami

PALU, Indonesia (AFP) – Indonesia yesterday called off the grim search for those killed in the quake-tsunami, with no hope of retrieving around 5,000 bodies believed to be still buried under the ruins nearly two weeks after the disaster. The magnitude 7.5-quake and a subsequent tsunami razed swathes of the city of Palu on Sulawesi island on September 28. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
