Magnitude 6.3 earthquake rocks Indonesia’s Lombok island: USGS

LOMBOK, (AFP) – A strong 6.3-magnitude earthquake rocked the Indonesian island of Lombok Sunday, just weeks after a quake which killed more than 460 people, the US Geological Survey said.
The tremor was centered west-southwest of Belanting town in East Lombok, the USGS said, at a relatively shallow depth of seven kilometres (four miles). Residents said the quake was felt strongly in East Lombok.
