    The country's TVOne station has showed footage of women, children and babies crying and screaming for help from military personnel.

    They are begging to be allowed on board a plane in the city of Palu, which has been severly hit by the disaster.

    One woman told reporters: "We have not eaten for three days. We just want to be safe."
    According to UN estimates, some 191,000 people are in urgent need of help.

    Meanwhile, a mass grave has been dug for as many as 1,300 victims of Indonesia's earthquake and tsunami, as rescuers race to find survivors and stop disease spreading.

    The number of dead after Friday's disaster on the island of Sulawesi stands at 844 but authorities fear many more bodies will be found in remote areas - possibly thousands.
    Describing the earthquake, one survivor said tearfully: "The ground rose up like a spine and suddenly fell. Many people were trapped under collapsed houses. I could do nothing to help."

    They added: "In the evening, some of them turned on their mobile phones just to give a sign that they were there. But the lights were off later and the next day."

    National disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said: "The casualties will keep increasing."

    He added that "there are still hundreds of victims buried in mud".

    A lack of machinery has slowed down the search and around 60 people are believed to still be buried under one hotel in Palu - the city of more than 300,000 where most of the dead have so far been found.
