Indonesia’s earth quake: 10 dead, 40 hurt

A shallow, magnitude 6.4 earthquake early Sunday killed at least 10 people and injured 40 on Indonesia's Lombok Island.

A spokesman for Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said the number of casualties could increase further as data is still being collected. He said East Lombok district is the hardest hit in the earthquake with eight deaths, including a Malaysian national. The quake damaged dozens of single-story houses and taller buildings and was felt in a wider area. Lombok Island, a famous tourist destination in Southeast Indonesia, is 100 km east of Bali.
