    BALI (Indonesia) (Sputnik) – At least four people died and 11 went missing after a cliff collapsed in the Indonesian city of Yogyakarta, Java island, Jakarta Post reported on Friday citing local police chief.

    The incident occurred on Wednesday, when hundreds of people gathered for the Padusan ritual, a traditional cleansing before Ramadan fasting month. The cliff fell onto dozens of nearby visitors.
