  • Indonesia earthquake: Huge 6.0 magnitude rocks volcanic Java island

Areas hit by liquefaction will be turned into parks and sports fields and memorials.

A magnitude 6.0 quake shook the tourist hotspot of Bali two weeks after a major quake-tsunami disaster in a central region of the archipelago.

The USGS put the epicenter at 40 km (25 miles) northeast of Sumberanyar on Java island. At least a dozen bodies were recovered, a Reuters photographer said.

However, it is feared there could be as many as 5,000 still buried amid the rubble after large swathes of Palu, on Sulawesi island, were razed to the ground. "We want to help as many as we can", he said.

Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said today prayers will be held, collectively, in Balaroa, Petobo and Jono Oge to "end the evacuation of bodies". "Everything I own, everyone else, is gone", he said.

"I am sure Central Sulawesi will rise again", he said. There are four meters of soil here.

In a statement, Indonesia's foreign ministry explained that foreign aid workers must first coordinate with the national team, local agencies or non-governmental organisations leading the rescue and recovery effort.

Around 100 people died on the island of Lombok August when an natural disaster measuring 7 struck and was followed by aftershocks.

A man gestures towards a search and rescue team while looking for victims in the quake and liquefaction affected Balaroa neighbourhood in Palu.

But it has accepted help from overseas to cope with the Sulawesi disaster.

Dwikorita Karnawati, the head of Indonesia's geophysics agency who was also in Nusa Dua for the International Monetary Fund summit, said no tsunami warning was issued.

Rescue teams are working with residents to try to identify where victims could be.

"At the same time, if they ask us to help, if they're pointing "please look here, my family is under here", of course, we can't say "no", we have to dig".

Indonesia initially refused worldwide help, saying the military had the situation in hand.

"There are political sensitivities, especially with an election coming up, and sovereignty is another issue", said Keith Loveard, a senior analyst with advisory and risk firm Concord Consulting, referring to polls due next year. Many Indonesians go by one name.

The quakes and the tsunami have affected a total of 87,725 people, with 78,994 of them taking shelter in Central Sulawesi province, while the rest have engaged in an exodus to nearby provinces, he added.
