Indonesia quake toll rises

Rescue teams search through the wreckage of homes for those still missing after the 6.2 magnitude earthquake on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. By Thursday the number people known to have died in the quake had risen to at least 30. Indonesian authorities said at least 12 were still missing. More than 200 people have been injured. Officials say more than 1, 500 homes and other buildings have been destroyed by the quake in Central Aceh Province two days earlier. Troops have set up a makeshift hospital and kitchen and tents for those without shelter. Electricity supplies are slowly getting back to normal but communication is still patchy.
