The death toll from last week’s earthquake in Papua New Guinea’s remote highlands has risen to at least 67 people, the Red Cross said, even as the region continues to face strong aftershocks. The country’s already damaged Southern Highlands on Monday endured three aftershocks stronger than a magnitude 5. The government declared a state of emergency last week after a 7.5 magnitude quake left many regions inaccessible.
