Nine dead in Indonesian earthquake.

By and AAP staff

14:17pm (AEST) AN earthquake that struck the central
Indonesian island of
Sulawesi has left nine people dead and hundreds of homes

The earthquake struck yesterday morning with a magnitude of
6.5 said The Antara
news agency.

A wide stretch of eastern Sulawesi and the offshore islands
of Peleng and Banggai
were also affected.

The death toll is expected to rise because coastal villages
struck by a small
tsunami wave that followed the earthquake have not yet
reported due to
communications problems.
