Aftershock rocks Lombok in Indonesia as death toll rises

The Gili islands is located just off the coast of Lombok

A strong aftershock has shaken the Indonesian island of Lombok, causing the collapse of several buildings.

It is the third natural disaster to hit the island in under two weeks. The US Geological Survey has measured it at magnitude 5.8.

It said it did not have the potential to cause a tsunami.

He said: "People are always saying they need water and tarps".

Almost 1,500 people are in hospital with serious injuries and more than 156,000 have been displaced due to the extensive damage to thousands of homes.

"This number will continue increasing as rescue teams continue to find victims under collapsed buildings", the agency said in a statement.

The death toll of Sunday's quake now stands at 319 but is likely to rise, according to Indonesia's chief security minister Wiranto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name.

Many frightened villagers are staying under tents or tarpaulins dotted along roads or in parched rice fields, and makeshift medical facilities have been set up to treat the injured.

He said they were also looking for people with untreated injuries.

Many people used the word "selamat" - meaning "to survive" - as they wrote about the magnitude 7.0 quake, which, CBS reports, killed at least 131 people.

On Sunday, a powerful 6.9-magnitude natural disaster devastated the tourist island, which has led to the deaths of at least 347 as of Thursday, according to the state-run Antara news agency.

The island was still recovering after two other recent earthquakes when the tremor happened.
