The death toll of an earthquake that hit the Indonesian town of Cianjur this week rose to 310, the country's national disaster mitigation agency said on Friday.

Iran PressAsia: The death toll from an earthquake which struck Indonesia’s Java island has risen to 310 after rescuers found more bodies under landslides, an official said.

In devastated towns in western Java, residents gathered near badly damaged mosques for Friday prayers.

Others held prayers along with rescuers between the tents at evacuation centers.

At least 24 people are still missing.

Bodies were recovered on Friday in two areas of the mountainous Cianjur district, where landslides triggered by Monday’s earthquake brought tonnes of mud, rocks and broken trees, said Henri Alfiandi, chief of the National Search and Rescue Agency. 219
