A 5.6 magnitude earthquake was recorded on the island of Java, Indonesia

The epicentre was detected in the city of Cianjur at a depth of 10 kilometres.

The earthquake damaged several buildings, even shaking skyscrapers in the capital Jakarta, which is 100 km away.

According to the head of the Cianjur municipal administration, ‘about 20 people died in one hospital alone and at least 300 are being treated.

Most of them have fractures after being trapped in the rubble of buildings’.

Subsequently confirmed deaths exceeded the number of 50.

Because of its location on the ‘Fire Belt’, an area stretching 40,000 km around the Pacific Ocean, the country is frequently hit by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis.

Even last February, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake killed 25 people and injured 460 in the province of West Sumatra.
