Many children killed when their schools collapsed are among the 252 dead following an earthquake that devastated a town in Indonesia, officials have said.

Rescuers are still trying to reach people trapped in the rubble after the 5.6-magnitude quake struck in mountains in West Java on Monday, causing significant damage to the town of Cianjur and burying at least one village under a landslide.

Hundreds of people were also injured, with the authorities warning the death toll was likely to rise further.

Landslides and rough terrain were hampering rescue efforts, said Henri Alfiandi, head of National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas).
