The death toll from a powerful earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia has soared to 832 and could climb higher, the disaster agency said Sunday.
The new toll announced by the national disaster agency was almost double the previous figure. Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla said the final number of dead could be in the "thousands" as many regions have still not been reached.
So far, it said, almost all the deaths had been recorded in Palu, two days after waves five feet high slammed into the city of 350,000 on Sulawesi island.
Eleven deaths had been recorded in the region of Donggala to the north of Palu, it said.
National disaster mitigation agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told a news conference the affected area was bigger than initially thought, though rescuers only had good access to one of four affected districts - Palu.
"We haven't received reports from the three other areas. Communication is still down, power is still out. We don't know for sure what is the impact," he said.
