At least thirty two people have died after a strong quake hit the Indonesian island of Lombok early on Sunday morning.

The quake, measuring 7.0 in the Richter Scale, had a relatively shallow epicenter, just 10km beneath the surface.

Initially, there were fears that a tsunami might hit the stricken areas, but this did not come to pass.
