    Indonesia earthquake toll reaches 310

    CIANJUR, Indonesia (AP) – The death toll from an earthquake that struck Indonesia’s Java island early this week rose to 310 after rescuers found more bodies under landslides, an official said. At least 24 people remain missing.

    In devastated towns in western Java, residents gathered near badly damaged mosques for Friday prayers. Others held prayers along with rescuers between the tents at evacuation centres. Bodies were recovered on Friday in two areas of the mountainous Cianjur district where landslides triggered by Monday’s quake brought tonnes of mud, rocks and broken trees, said, Chief of the National Search and Rescue Agency Henri Alfiandi.
