The Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) has confirmed the death of 91 people and missing of 38 nationwide.
“A single attempt by the state to face disaster is not enough. We express our objection on the decision made by the government to restrict NGOs on providing support in the name of one-door system”, the statement says.
