INDONESIA – Indonesian rescuers narrowing their focus, Thursday, to a landslide where dozens of people were believed trapped after an earthquake killed at least 272, more than a third of them children.

Many of the more than 1,000 rescuers were using backhoes, sniffer dogs and life detectors, as well as their bare hands, to search the worst-hit area where a landslide set off by Monday’s quake left tons of mud, rocks and broken trees.

Rescue efforts were temporarily suspended Wednesday as heavy monsoon rains fell.
