  • A woman cries after learning that her daughter was one of those buried at a mass grave after being recovered in the massive earthquake and tsunami at Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018. Nearly a week after a magnitude 7.5 quake spawned a deadly tsunami on Indonesia’s island of Sulawesi, countless people have yet to find their loved ones _ both survivors and the dead. As of Thursday, the official death toll was 1,424, with 113 people missing. Many families, though, never registered their losses with police, and others have failed to identify them before they were buried anonymously in mass graves. (AP Photo/Aaron Favila)
