In Indonesia, at least three people were killed as a shallow 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Java and Bali islands. A government official said the victims in East Java’s Sumenep district perished after being crushed by collapsed buildings last midnight. The strong quake was felt in Denpasar on the holiday island of Bali, where panicked people fled from buildings. The tremor’s epicentre was in the Bali Sea around 40 kilometres off the eastern end of Java island, according to the United States Geological Survey.
