A 5.9 magnitude natural disaster hit the Indonesian island of Lombok Thursday, according to the United States Geological Survey, an area already struggling to recover from a massive quake that hit Sunday.
Thursday's quake could be felt on Bali, another popular Indonesian resort island west of Lombok.
The National Disaster Mitigation Agency said that at least 131 people were killed in Sunday's quake, but other agencies say the death toll has risen to more than 300.
The aftershock comes after Sunday's devastating 6.9-magnitude quake, which relief agencies said had wiped out entire villages in the worst-hit regions of northern and western Lombok.
Volunteers and rescue personnel have erected more temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on the island.
Indonesia's geological agency said the quake on Thursday afternoon had a magnitude of 6.2 and was shallow, at a depth of 12 kilometres, centred in the north-west of the island.
The latest aftershock, which had a magnitude of 5.9, according to the US Geological Survey, caused fresh panic and damage on the island.
Humanitarian groups say that they are focusing their efforts on reaching these areas which have so far been impassable because of collapsed buildings, roads and other destruction related to Sunday's quake.
