Indonesia: At least 56 killed in quake

At least 56 people have been killed in a magnitude 6.2 earthquake that struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday, the state-run Disaster Management Authority said in a recent report.

The representative of the Authority stressed that 826 have been injured, of which 189 are being treated for serious injuries.

Earlier in the day, rescue workers found at least 10 survivors under the rubble in Sulawesi. At least 10,000 people were left homeless.

The earthquake caused panic among the residents, in the western part of Sulawesi, which was hit in 2018 by a very strong earthquake and a catastrophic tsunami.

Authorities have not specified how many people may be trapped in the rubble.
