PORT MORESBY - The death toll from a massive earthquake in Papua New Guinea rose to seven Monday and is expected to grow as rescuers begin to reach remote landslide-hit communities. Police Commissioner David Manning said the victims of Sunday’s 7.6-magnitude quake had been found across the central north of the country, where there is widespread damage to homes and infrastructure. “The tremors caused damage to buildings and public roads” he said, adding “a number of landslides were triggered.” Three alluvial miners were buried alive near the settlement of Wau and four others died in locations across Morobe and Madang provinces, Manning said. University of Goroka buildings were badly damaged and “there are reports of injuries to students on the campus and they have been admitted to hospital,” said Manning. Missionary groups and private aviation firms have been trying to reach isolated communities and airlift the injured to safety.
