The death toll from a tsunami off western Indonesia has reached 23.
Disaster officials added that many villagers are also missing in the wake of the 10ft wave.
It was triggered by a 7.7-magnitude quake which struck 13 miles beneath the ocean floor late on Monday.
The wave washed away hundreds of houses in two coastal villages on Pagai and Silabu - part of the remote and sparsely populated Mentawai island chain.
Ade Edward, a disaster management agency official, said that casualty figures are only just starting to trickle in. So far, 23 bodies have been found and at least 167 people are missing.
Indonesia is on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire and is prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity.
