to twenty people have been killed after a 5.6-magnitude earthquake rattled Indonesia’s West Java province on Monday, a local official said.

Herman Suherman, a government official from Cianjur, the town in West Java where the epicentre of the quake was located, told news channel MetroTV that up to 20 people had died and 300 more were injured.

“This is from one hospital, there are four hospitals in Cianjur,” he said, adding that it was possible the death and injury toll could rise.
