45,000 left homeless after Indonesia quake


INDONESIA, Tens of thousands of people have been displaced after a devastating earthquake in Indonesia killed more than 100 people, an official said today, leaving communities in ruins as aid trickled into the disaster-stricken province.

“We have 45,300 people evacuating in several places as of Saturday morning,” national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told AFP, adding that the number of displaced had almost doubled since Friday due to an influx of new data.
