Indonesian rescue workers on Sunday recovered three more bodies from the landslide that buried farmers in Central Java province late last week, bringing the death toll to 11.
Search and rescue teams also found body parts that they are still trying to identify, said Sutopo Nugroho, spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency.
Excavators have been deployed to search for seven people still listed as missing in the landslide, while four others who were reported missing earlier turned out to be safe.
Nugroho called on the communities to remain on guard as floods and further landslides are likely. The national weather agency BMKG has forecast that the rain will intensify in the next three days.
The landslide struck Salem village on Thursday after days of heavy rain. The torrent of mud buried farmers who were tending their rice fields and killed five people on the spot.
