  • Dozens killed in Indonesia earthquake

The Indonesian island of Lombok was shaken by a third big natural disaster in little more than a week on Thursday as the official death toll from the most powerful of the quakes topped 300.

Rescue team members prepare to find people trapped inside a mosque after an natural disaster hit on Sunday in Pemenang, Lombok Island, Indonesia, on August 8, 2018.

The latest quake on Thursday was felt strongly on the island and followed a 6.9 quake on Sunday that killed at least 131 people and damaged thousands of houses.

" 'It was overwhelming, ' Andoni's 35-year-old brother-in-law, Ilham, said of the chaotic aftermath of Sunday's magnitude 7.0 quake on the island of Lombok".

Reuters witnesses reporting on the aftermath of last Sunday's quake in the north of the island said people ran out onto roads in panic and some buildings collapsed.

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

Facebook users writing the Indonesian word "selamat"-which roughly translates to "unhurt" or "survive"- when referring to the 7.0-magnitude quake reported seeing confetti and balloons when they were writing messages of sympathy to their friends and family on social media".

One aid agency, Yayasan Plan International Indonesia, has warned that thousands of children have been left homeless, forced to sleep in open fields without warm clothing or blankets.
