Jakarta:  The death toll from Indonesia’s quake and tsunami jumped to 384, the disaster agency said Saturday, as hospitals struggled to cope with hundreds of injured and rescuers scrambled to reach the stricken region.

So far, it said all the deaths were recorded in tsunami-struck Palu, a day after waves 1.5 metres (five feet) high slammed into the city of 350,000 in central Sulawesi island.(AFP)
