Indonesia's senior coordinator of relief efforts in Aceh province says more than 90 thousand tsunami victims have been buried and that an estimated 100 thousand people are still missing.
Welfare Minister Alwi Shihab said Saturday that the death toll may rise as officials begin focusing on rebuilding the devastated province.
Mr. Shihab also reiterated the government's call for separatist rebels to resume peace negotiations.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger rebels have accused the government of obstructing aid deliveries to tsunami-affected areas under rebel control - a charge officials deny.
Rebel leaders also met with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jan Petersen and another peace envoy (in the rebel stronghold, Kilinochchi) Saturday to discuss the disaster.
Mr. Petersen is in Sri Lanka for talks aimed at reviving peace efforts between the rebels and government and assess the needs of tsunami-hit areas.
