Fearing more aftershocks, Indonesians sleep in tents
Issued on: Modified:
The shallow 6.9-magnitude earthquake Sunday levelled tens of thousands of homes, mosques and businesses across Lombok, just one week after another tremor surged through the Indonesian island and killed 17. More aftershocks are expected in the coming days. Residents, afraid to stay in their homes, have set up makeshift tents. Authorities and NGOs are rushing to treat the injured, search for survivors, and coordinate relief. FRANCE 24's Clovis Casali reports from Lombok.
