Sanitation deteriorates for Indonesians left homeless
Another peril loomed from a nearby volcano, which spewed lava and hot gases dozens of times on Sunday.
There was also concern about bird flu in the quake zone, as the number of Indonesia's human deaths from the virus mounted. Some of the homeless have taken shelter in chicken coops that aid workers fear could contain the disease.
Despite the hardships of day-to-day survival, farmers in the quake zone were returning to their fields to pick food, under pressure to earn money for rebuilding their shattered homes. Farming communities were among the hardest hit by the quake.
