An earthquake on the Indonesian island of Lombok has killed 387 people, authorities said today (Aug 11), adding that hundreds of thousands of displaced people were still short of clean water, food and medicine nearly a week on.
 
The shallow 6.9-magnitude quake Sunday levelled tens of thousands of homes, mosques, and businesses across Lombok, just one week after another tremor surged through the island and killed 17.
 
The number forced from their homes in the disaster has soared to 387,000, Nugroho said, with around 13,000 injured.
 
The hardest hit region of Lombok has been in the north, where 334 people have died and nearly 200,000 have been forced from their homes, according to the latest official tolls.
 
Two people were also killed by the quake on the neighbouring tourist island of Bali.
