Scenes of body bags lining roads, with the smell becoming “almost unbearable,” are emerging from Indonesia, as the death toll from last week’s earthquake and tsunami has climbed to over 1,500.

“In Balaroa village, on the outskirts of Palu, everything is destroyed. The streets are ruined and there’s no water or sanitation facilities for people gathered in shelters. Most families only have one tarp and one mat,” said Catholic Relief Service aid worker Fatwa Fadillah, who is on the ground near Palu, one of the worst-hit areas.
