Pictures from the devastating 7.5 magnitude earthquake that struck Indonesia on Friday

Incredible drone pictures have shown the full extent of the devastating Indonesian earthquake which has destroyed buildings and killed more than 1,200 people.

Hundreds of people are trapped in mud and 1,700 homes have been swallowed up on the island of Sulawesi after the magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck on Friday, triggering a tsunami.

Huge mass graves are being dug in an desperate attempt to stop disease from spreading, with one grave measuring 10 by 100 metres.

Survivors have been forced to comb through body bags in an attempt to identify their missing family members.

Pictures captured by a drone show a huge ship stranded ashore after being thrown inland by the tsunami, a mosque totally destroyed and cars left lodged in buildings by powerful waves sparked by the massive tremor.
