In Indonesia, the death toll from Friday’s massive earthquake and tsunami is at 1,234 and is expected to continue rising, as the United Nations’ humanitarian organization said more than 190,000 people are in urgent need of aid. Among the dead are 34 students whose bodies were found buried Monday after a landslide engulfed their church. Another 52 at the site remain missing. Critics say officials were caught off guard by the unexpected strength of a tsunami resulting from a 7.5 magnitude quake and called off a tsunami warning too early.
