Early estimates say more than 2,900 people are dead after an earthquake strikes central Indonesia. A UNICEF representative tells Linda Wertheimer about the damage and the beginning of relief efforts.

The 6.2 magnitude quake did much of its damage in a highly populated area of Java. Indonesia is still recovering from the effects of the devastating South Asian tsunami of December 2004.
