No South Africans caught in deadly Indonesian earthquake

There are no indications yet that any South Africans have been affected by this morning’s earthquake in Indonesia. But Foreign Affairs spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa says South Africa's diplomatic mission in Indonesia will continue checking. The South African government has also expressed its condolences to the government and people of Indonesia and says it is ready to assist in any way possible. More than one-thousand-700 people have already been reported dead and scores are injured after the six-point-two magnitude quake on the island of Java. The death toll is expected to rise dramatically as more bodies are found.
