Quake at Indonesia leaves 91 dead
Dhaka, 6 August, Abnews: At least 91 people were left dead and scores injured after a powerful earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Lombok.
 
The 6.9 magnitude tremor was fairly shallow, occurring only 30km (18 miles) underground. It damaged thousands of buildings and triggered power cuts.
 
About 1,000 foreign tourists are being evacuated from the nearby Gili islands and at least one person died on Bali.
 
A tsunami warning was issued but was lifted after a few hours.
 
The damage comes exactly a week after the region was hit by a 6.4-magnitude quake that left at least 15 people dead and 162 injured.
