Indonesian landslide toll mounts

Date : 27th December 2007, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Rescuers in Indonesia are struggling to reach survivors and victims of the landslides and floods which hit the central island of Java on 26 December. At least 120 people are reported dead or missing, with tens of thousands forced to flee their houses. Landslides and floods are regular in Indonesia and many blame deforestation. The latest flood, said to be the worst in a generation, came on the third anniversary of the tsunami that left 220,000 Indonesians dead or missing.
