Flooding and landslides in Indonesia’s Papua province (West Papua) have killed 89 people, more than 60 remain missing and 4,100 have been displaced.
The number of casualties is expected to rise, as rescue teams face difficulties in accessing remote areas.
Although floodwaters are receding, there is a risk of further landslides, as well as residual disruption to essential services, in the coming days.
