Indonesia has been hit by an offshore earthquake measuring 6.2 on the Richter scale which has shaken the tourist centre Yogyakarta. Various new agencies are saying the death toll is rising rapidly and is well over a thousand dead so far with thousands more injured.


More than 300 people have been killed and hundreds injured after an earthquake shook the area around Indonesia's ancient royal city and tourist centre Yogyakarta.

The city, on Indonesia's main island of Java, is near Mount Merapi, a volcano that has put people on alert for a major erruption this month.

This luckily did not cause a tsunami, however there is fear that it could worsen the already fragile Merapi volcano. Fingers crossed these people can get all the help they need as soon as possible, there must be a lot of fear on that island after the last major tsunami.
