"Last night, we had identified seven other victims. We had earlier already identified 44 victims, and this has brought the number to 51," a spokesman of the Indonesian Police Senior Commissioner Sulistyo Pudjo Hartono stated here on Thursday.
Of the identified victims, 40 are males and 11 are females.
The Disaster Victim Identification team has received 185 body bags from the search and rescue team, and it has collected DNA from 609 samples.
Hartono remarked that the government had offered psychological assistance to the families of the victims.
He noted that the number of body bags was not indicative of the number of bodies found by the search and rescue team, as each bag might contain body parts of different victims.
