Jakarta, The lack of heavy equipment and fuel is

hampering the search for people still buried in the rubble after

Indonesia’s Sulawesi earthquake measuring 4.7 on the Richter scale

killed 832 people and thousands of people missing, Indonesian

authorities said.

“Heavy equipment is very limited and fuel is not available, making it

difficult for us to search for victims,” Head of operations of the National

Search and Rescue Agency said, urging everyone to help recover the

bodies buried in collapsed houses.

Indonesia is located in an area called the Pacific Ring of Fire, an

area known for seismic disturbances and volcanic eruptions.
