Powerful tremor hits Indonesia days after quake kills 350

Dozens killed in Indonesia earthquake

The tremor is the latest in a series of aftershocks to rock the Indonesian island which sits on the Ring of Fire in the Indian Ocean, after a deadly magnitude 6.9 natural disaster struck on Sunday.

Reuters witnesses reporting on the aftermath of Sunday's quake in the north of the island said buildings and walls that had already been weakened collapsed, and people ran out onto roads even as rocks tumbled down from hillsides.

According to Indonesia's meteorological agency, the quake struck at a depth of 12 kilometers (12.5 miles), originating just several miles northwest of Lombok.

Local media had earlier reported the death toll at 347, but the national disaster agency says that figure has not been verified.

BNPB spokesman Sutopo Nugroho said there has been 355 aftershocks following Sunday's quake.
