A powerful Earthquake in Indonesia: 83 killed
At least 82 people are now known to have died after a powerful earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Lombok.
Hundreds of people have been wounded by yesterday’s quake, officials say, and the death toll is expected to rise.
The magnitude seven tremor was shallow, occurring only 10km (6.21 miles) underground. It damaged thousands of buildings and triggered power cuts.
On the neighbouring island of Bali, video footage showed people running from their homes screaming.
A tsunami warning was issued but was lifted after a few hours.
It comes a week after another quake hit Lombok, popular with tourists who visit its beaches and hiking trails. That quake killed at least 16 people.
Lombok is a roughly 4,500 sq km (1,700 sq miles) island west of the slightly larger island of Bali.
The two islands are home to about three and four million people respectively, but each year are visited by millions of tourists from around the globe.
