REUTERS: At least 384 people were killed, many swept away by giant waves as they played on the beach, when a major earthquake and tsunami hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, authorities said on Saturday (September 29).

Hundreds had gathered for a festival on the beach of the city of Palu on Friday (September 28) when waves up to six meters (18 feet) high smashed ashore just on dusk, sweeping many to their death and destroying anything in their path.

Bodies in bags were seen being lined up along a street in Palu on Saturday, while authorities were still trying to determine the exact extent of the damage.
