Fresh quake hits Lombok, fells buildings

Dozens killed in Indonesia earthquake

Indonesia's disaster agency says the death toll from the quake that shook Lombok island Sunday evening has risen to 131.

The aftershock comes after Sunday's devastating 6.9-magnitude quake, which relief agencies said had wiped out entire villages in the worst-hit regions of northern and western Lombok.

Rescuers intensified efforts Wednesday to find those buried in the rubble, with volunteers and rescue personnel erecting temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on the southern island.

Officials said the quake's epicentre was on land and so there was no risk of a tsunami.

The US Geological Survey measured the quake at magnitude 5.9.

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

Speaking to The Washington Post by phone en route to a badly-damaged village, he said nearly 80 percent of the buildings and structures, including homes, schools and community facilities, have been destroyed in that area.

While the quake was centred on the island of Lombok, people in nearby Bali were also strongly affected.

"Our latest update is that 319 people died", said Indonesia's chief security minister Wiranto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, adding that rescue efforts were ongoing and complicated by aftershocks.

Sunday's quake also sent some 2,500 people to hospital with serious injuries and drove more than 156,000 people from their homes. Aid workers have found some hamlets hard to reach because bridges and roads were torn up by the disaster.

He estimated 75 percent of houses are damaged in some villages in east and north Lombok. Buildings still standing on the island have been weakened after Sunday's quake.

Tourists had evacuated or left the country themselves following Sunday's quake.

There is a dire need for medical staff and "long-term aid", especially food and medicine in the worst-hit areas, government officials said.

"There has been no help at all here", said 36-year-old Multazam, staying with hundreds of others under tarpaulins on a dry paddy field outside West Pemenang village. More than 1,000 schools have been damaged, the organization said.

"We lack the infrastructure to perform operations because (they) need to be performed in a sterile place", Wibowo told AFP.
