China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - World - IN­DONE­SIA

At least 20 peo­ple were killed and five oth­ers are still miss­ing as land­slides and floods struck In­done­sia’s East Java prov­ince, a gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial from the dis­as­ter agency said on Satur­day. The land­slides and floods were trig­gered by a cy­clone from the In­dian Ocean which also hit other prov­inces. The num­ber of peo­ple forced to leave their homes in­creased to 2,050 on Satur­day from 1,879 a day ear­lier as the disas­ters in Pac­i­tan dis­trict of East Java prov­ince dev­as­tated 1,709 houses, a spokesman for the na­tional dis­as­ter man­age­ment agency said.
