After more remains were discovered buried beneath landslides, the death toll from an earthquake that shook Indonesia’s Java island early this week increased to 310.
At least 24 people have yet to be found.
According to the National Search and Rescue Agency, the remains were discovered in two locations in the mountainous Cianjur district where landslides delivered loads of dirt, rocks, and downed trees as a result of Monday’s earthquake.
Since the magnitude 5.6 earthquake, which injured more than 2,000 people, more than 1,400 rescuers have been digging through the debris.
Officials say rescuers will continue searching until rebuilding begins.
