Four days after an earthquake and tsunami hit Indonesia’s Sulawesi island, the death toll has risen to 1,234 from 844, the national disaster agency said.

Authorities are also struggling to reach other affected areas due to damaged infrastructure leading to fears the death toll could rise again.

Nearly 200,000 people have been displaced and are in need of emergency help, while thousands have been streaming out of the stricken areas.
