A magnitude 4.8 earthquake is the latest tremor to hit the Indonesia island of Lombok.

The quake struck the popular tourist destination on Friday at 3.37am BST (9.37am WIB) 3km west south-west of Karangsubagan at a depth of 10km (6 miles).

The island continues to be battered by a series of powerful earthquakes, some greater than magnitude 6.

The most deadly quake came on August 5 measuring magnitude 6.9 and another on July 29 at magnitude 6.4.

More than 560 people died in the August 5 quake, which displayed over 417,000 people.

Shaking was felt as far away as Sumbawa in the east and Trenggalek Regency in the west.

The Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) stated that the epicentre of the earthquake was located inland, on the northeastern slopes of Mount Rinjani.

Then on August 19, two more large earthquakes rocked the island, the first magnitude 6.3 and the second even larger at magnitude 6.9.
