Indonesia: Death toll climbs to 429 from tsunami

The death toll from the devastating tsunami climbed to 429 in Indonesia while the search for the missing still continues. Rescue workers, helped by heavy lifting equipment, are going from village to village, sifting through the debris looking for survivors in badly hit areas on the islands of Sumatra and Java. Meanwhile, Indonesia says it will build a new warning system capable of detecting tsunamis caused by undersea landslides. Installation of the new structure of buoys would start next year.
