The number of people known to have died in last week’s earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia has risen to over 1,347.
The shocking death toll jumped on Tuesday from a previously figure of 844.
The 7.5-magnitude quake struck just off the central island of Sulawesi, which set off a tsunami that engulfed the city of Palu.
Aid is beginning to arrive in the city, where survivors have no access to running water or electricity.
However, civil unrest is increasing as people become desperate for food,water and medical supplies.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
