Death toll in Indonesia, East Timor floods hit 70

More than 70 people have died and dozens are still missing after flash floods and landslides hit Indonesia and neighbouring East Timor, officials said Monday.

“There are 55 dead, but this number is very dynamic and will definitely change, while some 42 people are still missing,” Indonesia disaster management agency spokesman Raditya Djati told broadcaster MetroTV.
At least 16 people had also died in East Timor, said an official in the tiny half-island nation that lies between Indonesia and Australia.
