Indonesia Death Toll Passes 1,500: Body Bags Line Roads, Smell ‘Almost Unbearable’

(The Christian Post) Scenes of body bags lining roads, with the smell becoming “almost unbearable,” are emerging from Indonesia, as the death toll from last week’s earthquake and tsunami has climbed to over 1,500. “In Balaroa village, on the outskirts of Palu, everything is destroyed. The streets are ruined and there’s no water or sanitation facilities for people gathered in shelters. Most families only have one tarp and one mat,” said Catholic Relief Service aid worker Fatwa Fadillah, who is on the ground near Palu,

one of the worst-hit areas. “At Talise beach, where the tsunami came ashore, it’s a scene of devastation and search and rescue teams are still looking for survivors. All along the coast, you can see just how massive the tsunami was and the extent of the damage. Body bags are lining the road and the smell is almost unbearable,” Fadillah added. “It’s extremely hot and most people are sitting under tarps, just waiting. They’re waiting for aid and the sun to go down. They have nothing to do but wait.”
