Indonesia’s Lombok quake: Hundreds of trapped hikers rescued

More than 500 hikers are evacuated from Mount Rinjani on Lombok island after being stranded by a powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake.

Hundreds of hikers trapped on a mountain in Indonesia after Sunday’s earthquake have been rescued.

The tremors caused landslides on Mount Rinjani which blocked all escape routes.

The magnitude 6.4 earthquake left at least 16 people dead, injured hundreds of others and displaced thousands.
