Indonesia's Toll from Quake, Tsunami Rises - 2005-01-25


Indonesian government officials now say more than 228,000 people are either dead or missing from the December 26th earthquake and tsunami.

Officials with the nation's health ministry said Tuesday nearly 96,000 people are dead and have been buried, while more than 132,000 are missing. Health officials announced last week that more than 170,000 people had died.

Those who remain unaccounted for will be listed as missing for a year before they are officially declared dead.

But health officials concede at this point, those on the missing list are presumed dead.

Today's new figures boosts the overall death toll from all affected nations at more than 280,000 -- making it one of the deadliest natural disasters ever recorded.
