At least 844 people have died after a tsunami triggered by the second of two earthquakes struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday, disaster officials said Monday. A 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit Friday evening, followed by a 7.5 magnitude quake that triggered a tsunami with waves as high as 20 feet. The earthquake caused buildings to collapse and damaged infrastructure. A majority of the casualties came from the provincial capital of Palu. Reuters reported the dead also included 34 children at a Christian camp.
