Recovery efforts in Indonesia continue after a magnitude-7.5 earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi last week.
At least 1,200 people have been confirmed dead, but that figure will likely rise as relief and rescue teams make their way to remote areas.
Rescue workers have had to dig through mud, rubble, and debris for dead bodies using their bare hands, while they wait for equipment to be delivered.
The roads and airport were badly damaged by the events, meaning the arrival of heavy machinery has been slow.
Dozens of people are still thought to be buried underneath the rubble, and an estimated 59,000 people are displaced with limited access to food, water and shelter.
Australia has pledged to donate $5 million to rescue efforts, following an initial $500,000 in financial aid given to the Indonesian Red Cross.
Here’s a look at the recovery efforts in Palu, the capital city of Central Sulawesi, one of the worst hit regions on the island.
