Indonesia

Indonesia's health ministry today raised the country's confirmed death by 14,000 to just more than 94,000. Tens of thousands more are missing and presumed dead.

The government says it has enough food and medicine for survivors but that it cannot get the aid to many areas. The tiny airport in Banda Aceh, the provincial capital of Aceh, is finding it hard to cope with the number of planes now trying to bring in supplies. Other infrastructure has been utterly shattered.

Thousands of Indonesian troops have been drafted in to help clear the dead bodies.
