Mass burial planned following Indonesia earthquake that killed 832

Indonesia's disaster agency says a mass burial will be held in the city of Palu, which was slammed by an earthquake-spawned tsunami that killed at least 832 people.

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, the spokesman of the national disaster mitigation agency, told a news conference Sunday that the burial will be held for health reasons.

He also said 61 foreigners were in Palu at the time of the disaster, and most have been accounted for.

But one South Korean is believed to be trapped in the ruins of the Roa-Roa Hotel, where some 50 others are believed to be trapped under rubble.

Three visitors from France and one from Malaysia are missing.

The survivors will be evacuated to the Sulawesi island city of Makassar.

A magnitude 7.5 earthquake spawned the deadly tsunami on Friday evening.
