After the earthquake, the search for survivors


The search for survivors continues in Indonesia after Monday's powerful earthquake. At least 162 people died, hundreds more were injured on the island of Java, the country's largest.

The 5.6 magnitude earthquake hit the densely populated city of Cianjur and its fragile houses, destroyed in a few moments.

Rescuers worked through the night to try to save any survivors trapped under the collapsed buildings. The search is difficult due to road closures and power outages in this rural and hilly area.

Hospitals were overwhelmed with the injured, and many had to be treated outside, in improvised care units under tents.

The death toll is expected to rise further, with the Indonesian disaster management agency estimating that at least 25 people are still under the rubble.
