Toll climbs to 608 in Indonesian quakes

With little hope of finding additional survivors, authorities Monday began clearing the rubble left by a pair of devastating earthquakes that rocked Indonesia last week.

Authorities called off the rescue operation in Padang, and are now looking for bodies in the rubble, said Ade Edward, head of the rescue team.

The death toll from the quakes that struck Indonesia last week climbed to 608 on Monday, the government said.
