A fresh tremor of 6.3 magnitude struck the Indonesian holiday island of Lombok, the US Geological Survey has confirmed, after an earthquake killed more than 430 people there earlier this month.

USGS estimated the depth of the latest tremor at 7.9 kilometres and said the epicentre was on the north-eastern shoulder of the island at the foot of Mount Rinjani.
