The Chilean government said Thursday that correcting errors in tabulating the victims in Saturday's devastating earthquake may reduce the death toll, even as a second, unrelated temblor shook northern Chile. President Michelle Bachelet said the number of missing was added to the number of dead in Maule, the hardest-hit province. The death toll there was revised to 315 from about 565. Overall, the government previously said that slightly more than 800 people were confirmed dead.

It came as Indonesia is trying to recover from a quake last month that killed more than 1,000 people on the western island of Sumatra.
