Another natural disaster has struck the Indonesian island of Lombok as the community battles to recover from Sunday's quake.
Two deaths have been confirmed as the result of the latest tremor, after it brought down an elderly couple's home while they were still inside.
A 5.9-magnitude quake aftershock struck at a shallow depth in the northwest of Lombok Thursday, the US Geological Survey said, even as relief agencies raced to find survivors among the wreckage from Sunday's quake.
Officials and organisations including the military, the governor of the province that includes Lombok, the national search and rescue agency and the regent of North Lombok have issued different death tolls, ranging from 226 to 381.

The death toll from a magnitude 6.9 quake on the Indonesian island of Lombok on Sunday has risen to 259 and may go higher still, officials say.
Several agencies have been releasing higher death toll figures than the 131 announced on Wednesday by the National Disaster Mitigation Agency, which has a coordinating role in disaster relief. Some villages have collapsed entirely. A British tourist on nearby Bali told the BBC that it had been felt there, causing people to leave their hotel rooms in the southern resort area of Seminyak.
"There are still some evacuees that have not yet been touched by aid, especially in North Lombok and West Lombok", Nugroho tweeted Thursday.
The new tremor hit off the north-west coast of Lombok, sending people running into the streets in panic.
"Then the side pillar cracked and snapped, like a lumberjack breaking wood with his bare hands", said Mr Tahar, describing to The New Paper yesterday how part of the building had collapsed.
Indonesia's meteorological agency put the magnitude at 6.2.
Many Indonesian speakers took to Facebook either to tell friends and family that they were safe or to enquire about others.
Many buildings still standing on the island have been weakened.
The quake killed more than 100 people in Lombok and injured hundreds of others, leaving thousands of locals homeless and tourists stranded.
Aid groups say children are particularly vulnerable, with many sleeping in open fields and suffering illnesses from lack of warm clothing and blankets.
Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because of its location on the 'Ring of Fire, ' an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin.
