Damaged roads, bridges, power blackouts, and lack of heavy equipment on Saturday hampered Indonesia's rescuers after a 6.2 magnitude earthquake left at least 42 dead and hundreds injured on Sulawesi island. "Operations were focused on 10 locations in the hardest-hit city of Mamuju, where people are still believed trapped following Friday's night-time quake," said Saidar Rahmanjaya, head of the local search and rescue agency.
