Rescue teams search for survivors as earthquake kills three in Bali, Indonesia

Rescue teams searched for survivors in the rubble of destroyed homes as at least three people were killed and seven injured after an earthquake hit Bali, Indonesia, on Saturday morning.

The magnitude 4.8 quake struck around 8km from Karangasem Regency on the popular holiday island at 03:18 local time. It was followed by an aftershock.

Panicked locals ran outside before rescue teams arrived to help those trapped under the rubble from collapsed buildings.

A landslide was later seen crashing down a hillside and burying homes below.

The US Geological Survey said the earthquake’s shallow depth of 10km may have amplified the amount of damage.
