Death toll rises to 131 in Indonesian quake



Indonesia’s disaster agency says the death toll from the earthquake that shook Lombok island Sunday evening has risen to 131.
Spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said there are reports of other deaths but they still need to be verified. He said the death toll is still expected to increase.
Nearly 2,500 people have been hospitalized with serious injuries and more than 156,000 people are displaced due to the extensive damage to homes.
The magnitude 7.0 quake came a week after another quake on Lombok killed 16 people.
