Indonesia evacuated hundreds of tourists from popular resorts and sent rescuers fanning across the holiday island of Lombok after a 6.9 magnitude quake killed at least 91 people and reduced thousands of buildings to rubble.

The series of aftershocks triggered the exodus of tourists, with thousands attempting to secure the fastest way out of the island.

Here are some images of the deadly earthquake in Indonesia.
