A major earthquake rocked Indonesia on Wednesday, killing more than 30 people and unleashing a mass of rock and mud that buried villagers alive in their homes.

The magnitude-7.0 earthquake lasted nearly a minute and was felt hundreds of kilometres away.

Many of the victims were in buildings that buckled during the jolt, and at least 10 died in their houses when a landslide slammed into their neighbourhood.
