Sharjah 24 – Reuters: The death toll from an earthquake that hit the popular Indonesian resort island of Lombok last weekend has risen to 387, the country's national disaster management agency said Saturday.
Nearly 13,700 people were injured and 397,000 displaced, according to agency spokesman Sutopo Nugroho.
 
"The number of casualties will continue to increase as there are victims who are still buried by landslides and under the rubble of buildings," Nugroho added.
