A second quake has hit the Indonesian island of Lombok.
Wiranto said the government will develop a plan to rebuild communities on Lombok, which like its more famous neighbour Bali is a popular tourist destination with powder-white beaches, mountains and a lush interior.
Nyoman Sidekarya, chief of the provincial search and rescue agency that covers the Indonesian island of Lombok, tells The Associated Press that the death toll from the quake that hit the island on Sunday is now 227. The Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics said that yesterday's aftershock, one of the more than 300 registered by that entity, was the strongest one, although it did not have to activate the tsunami warning.
A magnitude 5.9 aftershock on Thursday injured more than two dozen people, damaged buildings and caused a landslide that buried four people.
The Indonesian Red Cross said it's focusing its relief efforts on an estimated 20,000 people in remote areas in the island's north where aid still has not reached.
The number of people on Lombok said to be living under the poverty line is put at more than double the official 2017 national average of 10.12 per cent.
According to Indonesia's meteorological agency, Thursday's quake struck at a depth of 12.5 miles, originating several miles northwest of Lombok.
Another 1447 people have been injured and 165,003 displaced.
It is likely to have been the strongest of the more than 340 aftershocks in the area since Sunday.
Rescue workers are still digging through rubble and trying to get aid to survivors of the earlier, larger quake.
The latest quake comes after the death toll from Sunday's disaster jumped.
The death toll from the Lombok quake has risen dramatically to 347, the government-run news agency Antara has said.
Many frightened villagers are staying under tents or tarpaulins dotted along roads or in parched rice fields. "We can buy our needs while waiting for the situation to get back to normal even though we're still anxious".
"People are always saying they need water and tarps", he said.
"The Indonesian Red Cross, supported by global partners, will accompany families and communities to help them recover from the impact of these earthquakes and increase their resilience to future shocks".
