Earthquake in Indonesia Death Toll Over 319 and thousand of people injured Aug 10 2018 7:53 AM | INDONESIA: The death toll from a devastating earthquake on the Indonesian island of Lombok jumped to 319. The shallow 6.9-magnitude quake Sunday levelled tens of thousands of homes, mosques and businesses across Lombok, with relief agencies only just starting to reach survivors in some of the worst-hit areas four days later. "Our latest update is that 319 people died," said Indonesia's chief security minister Wiranto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, adding that rescue efforts were ongoing and complicated by aftershocks. Around 1,400 people were seriously injured and more than 150,000 displaced, authorities said earlier. TOI
