Indonesia Earthquake Death Toll Rises To 164, At Least 1400 Injured

The national disaster agency has stood by its latest death toll of 131 from Sunday's quake despite other government agencies including the military reporting much higher figures.

'The corpses are starting to smell and we believe some people buried are still alive - that's why it's a critical time, ' Nugroho said.

Rescue workers look for survivors of Sunday's natural disaster on the Indonesian island of Lombok.

"There are still some evacuees that have not yet been touched by aid, especially in North Lombok and West Lombok", Nugroho tweeted Thursday.

Lombok quake leaves 156,000 homeless as death toll hits 131
Lombok airport's general manager said airlines had laid on extra flights and his staff had been providing blankets and snacks. Indonesia's disaster agency says the death toll from the quake that shook Lombok island Sunday evening has risen to 131.

The 5.9-magnitude quake on Thursday struck at a shallow depth in the northwest of the island, the US Geological Survey said, even as relief agencies raced to find survivors among wreckage from Sunday's quake.

Some villages had "completely collapsed", said a Red Cross official in Lombok, Christopher Rassi.

Buildings still standing on the island have been weakened after Sunday's 6.9 quake that killed at least 131 people and a 6.4 quake on July 29 that killed 16.

Water, which has been in short supply due to a prolonged dry spell on the island, as well as food and medical supplies were being distributed from trucks.

More than 345 people are now reported to have died in the wake of the 7.0-magnitude quake which struck the island of Lombok last week, and many have taken to social media to show their support or reach out to friends and family.

Local authorities, global relief groups and the central government have begun organising aid, but shattered roads have slowed efforts to reach survivors in the mountainous north of Lombok, which bore the brunt of the quake.

Workers with heavy machinery are searching the rubble of homes, schools and mosques, with hope of finding any survivors fading.

Aid groups say children are particularly vulnerable, with many sleeping in open fields and suffering illnesses from lack of warm clothing and blankets. More than 120,000 Indonesians were killed in the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, which led to a total death toll of 226,000 people in 13 countries.
