Indonesia's Aceh province hit by powerful earthquake
Jakarta, December 8, 2016

A 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck Banda Aceh yesterday, jolting Sumatra's northernmost province in the early hours of Wednesday morning.


The Indonesia media reported that the deadly earthquake has killed at least 97 people and injured hundreds more. Many homes, mosques and buildings were also damaged in the predawn quake.



The search operation for survivors is still ongoing.


Aceh was devastated by Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004, which killed some 150,000 people in the province alone.
