Another strong tremor rattles the Indonesian island of Lombok after a magnitude 7.0 quake on August 5 damaged tens of thousands of homes and displaced several hundred thousand people.
The National Disaster Mitigation Agency said on Saturday that 387 people died, jumping from the 321 it reported the previous day, as search and rescue teams continue to sift through the rubble and people already buried by relatives are accounted for.
Wiranto, Indonesia's top security minister, told reporters the death toll from Sunday's magnitude 7.0 quake had risen to 319. Meanwhile, officials said the epicentre of the third earthquake was on land and so there was no risk of a tsunami.
The US Geological Survey said the magnitude 7.0 quake struck at a depth of 10.5 kilometres about two kilometres east-southeast of Loloan.
