Hundreds of hikers still stranded after Lombok quake

On the Indonesian island of Lombok with mount Rinjani managed to evacuate 540 climbers, who were trapped after a strong natural disaster.

As many as 820 people - majority foreigners - were on Mount Rinjani when the quake struck, making two trails impassable, Sutopo said on Twitter late on Sunday.

One of the two bodies recovered by rescuers yesterday was that of climber Muhammad Ainul Muksin, 26, who died in a landslide during the natural disaster.

The epicentre of the quake was 50 kilometres (30 miles) northeast of Mataram, far from the main tourist spots on the south and west of the island.

"Providing food and medicine to them as soon as possible is now our priority", said Sudiyono.

MORE than 500 hikers have been rescued from the Mount Rinjani volcano, a popular tourist destination on the Indonesian island of Lombok, following a slew of landslides caused by a magnitude 6.4 natural disaster, officials said on Tuesday.

As more than 100 aftershocks continued to rock the popular tourist destination, falling debris caused several fatalities, while landslides blocked the paths down Mount Rinjani.

Hundreds of people in Lombok have been left homeless and are staying in temporary camps amid continuing aftershocks.

Anna Stevens and Kathryn Coulson, both 21 from Darlington, County Durham, were on a trekking tour on Mount Rinjani when the 6.4-magnitude quake struck Sunday.

Early estimates indicated more than 1,000 homes had been damaged or destroyed by the quake.

A Malaysian was among the dead, with another six citizens injured, the foreign ministry in Kuala Lumpur said.

Indonesia is particularly prone to seismic activity due to its location along the Pacific's "Ring of Fire", a chain of volcanoes and fault lines.

The quake on Sunday morning killed 16 people, including an Indonesian student who was climbing the volcano.
