印度尼西亚总统苏西洛.班邦.尤多约诺视察了本周地震和海啸受灾地区。地震和海啸造成的死亡人数已经达到343人,预计这个数字还会增加。

救援人员正在为苏门答腊西海岸以外偏远的明打威群岛上海啸的幸存者送去食物、帐篷和衣服。救灾官员说,他们在明打威群岛的海岸上发现了更多的尸体。救援人员正在搜寻至少338名失踪者,他们是这些群岛星期一遭到3米高的海啸袭击后失踪的。在印尼其他地区,这个星期导致33人死亡、4万人逃离家园的一座火山星期四再次喷发,向周围的村落喷涌热气和火山灰。欧盟承诺为印尼这次自然灾害的幸存者提供2百万美元的援助。

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has visited areas affected by this week's earthquake and tsunami, in which the death toll has reached 343 and is expected to climb.

Rescue workers are carrying food, tents and clothing to survivors of the tsunami on the remote Mentawai islands, off Sumatra's western coast. Disaster officials say they have found more bodies on the beaches of the Mentawais. Crews are searching for at least 338 people who have not been seen since a three-meter high wave struck the islands Monday.Elsewhere in Indonesia, a volcano that killed 33 people and caused 40,000 people to flee their homes this week began erupting again Thursday, spewing hot gas and ash onto villages.

The European Union has pledged $2 million in aid for the survivors of Indonesia's latest natural disasters.
