Indonesia: Tsunami death toll rises to 370 as more bodies found

Indonesia: Tsunami Death Toll Rises to 370 more

An official says the death toll from a tsunami off western Indonesia has risen to 370 as more bodies have been found in a search of the remote islands that were hardest-hit. Ferry Faisal, of the West Sumatra provincial disaster management agency, raised the official toll on Thursday to 370 from 311 earlier in the day. He says 338 people are still missing. Rescuers fear the numbers could climb higher, suspecting many of the missing may have been swept away to sea.
