Quake jolts Indonesia

At least seven people were injured, most of them with broken bones, Rusyam Pakaya from the Health Ministry’s crisis centre said. He said no deaths had been reported.

Residents and visitors ran out of their homes or hotels in panic when the quake struck Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination at 6:06 am.

The quake’s epicentre was in the Indian Ocean, about 101 km southeast of Nusadua on Bali, Indonesia’s National Meteorology and Geophysics Agency said. It occurred 36 km beneath the seabed, but the quake did not trigger a tsunami.
