Toll Rises From Indonesia's Nias Earthquake Last Month


The death toll from an earthquake that struck Indonesia's Nias island on March 28 has been raised to 905.

The 8.7-magnitude quake destroyed thousands of buildings and left many people homeless.

Wisnu Widjaya, a senior official of Indonesia's national disaster agency, says Monday that he expects the toll to go higher still, as more bodies are found beneath collapsed buildings and other wreckage.
