Flash floods and landslides triggered by heavy rain killed at least 23 people Thursday on Indonesia's main island of Java, state news agency Antara reported. Knee-high waters were hampering rescue work in the worst-hit district of Bendungan, in the east of the island. "Up until this afternoon, we have recorded 23 deaths," local district chief Soeharto was quoted as saying.
