The death toll from a 6.5-magnitude earthquake in Indonesia's Aceh province has risen to 102. The country's National Disaster Management Agency says more than 130 have serious injuries, and 3,200 have been evacuated.

The agency says more than 1,000 personnel, including military officers and volunteers, have been deployed to help in search and rescue operations.

Wednesday's quake was the biggest disaster to hit Aceh since the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, which killed more than 120,000 people in the province alone.
