Indonesia minister says quake deaths pass 300

BANGSAL, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia’s top security minister, Wiranto, says the death toll from last Sunday’s earthquake on the island of Lombok has climbed to 319.

The announcement comes after an inter-agency meeting that was convened to resolve wildly different figures for deaths from different agencies.

Lombok was hit by another earthquake on Thursday, the third in a little over a week, causing panic, injuries and damage to buildings.

Wiranto uses one name like many Indonesians.
