A magnitude 6.9 earthquake has struck the Indonesian island of Lombok. The neighbouring island of Bali was also affected. At least 91 people are reported to have been killed with many more injured.
Rescue officials reported most of the damage hit Lombok's main city of Mataram where thousands of buildings were damaged, causing widespread power cuts. Many tourists headed for the airport which was affected, but still operational. Others fled for the beach where boats evacuated people to safety.
