Indonesian volunteers began burying bodies in a vast mass grave Monday, victims of a quake-tsunami that devastated swaths of Sulawesi, as the U.N. warned that some 191,000 people were in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Indonesia is no stranger to natural calamities and Jakarta had been keen to show it could deal with a catastrophe that has killed at least 844 people, according to the latest official count, and displaced some 59,000 more.Rescuers are racing against the clock and a lack of equipment to save those still trapped in the rubble, with up to 60 people feared to be underneath one Palu hotel alone.Two survivors have been plucked from Hotel Roa-Roa, Indonesia's search and rescue agency said, and there could still be more alive.
