More than a dozen people were killed in a 5.6-magnitude quake that rattled Indonesia’s West Java province on Monday, a local official said.

Herman Suherman, a government official from Cianjur, the town in West Java where the epicentre of the quake was located, told news channel MetroTV that up to 20 people had died at one hospital in the area.
