Indonesia quake death toll rises to 30

The death toll from a powerful earthquake that rocked Indonesia’s remote Maluku islands rose to 30 yesterday, including several toddlers, the disaster agency said. On Thursday, terrified residents ran into the streets as buildings fell in around them when the 6.5-magnitude tremor struck, sparking landslides that buried at least one of the victims. Among the confirmed dead were three young children, with many people killed by falling debris in and around quake-struck Ambon city.
