The death toll from landslides and flooding in Indonesia has risen to 43 after hundreds of homes were engulfed by surging torrents of mud and rock.

Rescuers were searching through wrecked houses and mounds of earth for 19 villagers still missing after days of rain triggered the landslips and flash floods on mountainous Java Island over the weekend.

They were using excavators to hunt for survivors in more accessible areas, and in more remote places were digging through debris with their bare hands and shovels.

Hundreds of homes were badly damaged, with some completely flattened.

Reckless to break through the flood, motorcycle and 1 person swept away.

A motorist tried to break through floodwaters rushing, but failed.
