Outdoor prayers after quake destroys Indonesian town

STORY: Muslim cleric Muhamad Jamhur, 52, led a congregation in prayers in an outdoor volleyball court just 200 meters (0.1 mile) from a mosque whose walls were left cracked and windows shattered by the shallow 5.6-magnitude quake that hit the town of Cianjur, about 75 km south of the capital Jakarta, earlier this week.

Rescue teams on Friday continued efforts to clear mud and debris and pull out any victims. About 40 people remain missing, but hopes of finding them alive are slim, the disaster mitigation agency said.
