At least 15 people have died in landslides triggered after six days of torrential rains hit villages on an island in Indonesia's remote Natuna regency.
Rescuers were still searching on Tuesday for more missing people trapped in houses that were buried under the mud after the landslides, disaster officials have said. The landslides occurred on Monday on the island of Serasan, which is home to about 8,000 people.
More than 1,200 people have been displaced and taken to evacuation centers.
Authorities are still collecting information about the full scale of casualties and damage in the affected areas.
Seasonal rains and high tides in recent days have caused dozens of landslides and widespread flooding across much of Indonesia, a chain of 17,000 islands where millions of people live in mountainous areas or near fertile flood plains close to rivers.
