    A strong earthquake on Indonesia's main island of Java has killed eight people, including a woman whose motorcycle was hit by falling rocks, and damaged more than 1300 buildings

    A strong earthquake on Indonesia's main island of Java has killed eight people, including a woman whose motorcycle was hit by falling rocks, and damaged more than 1300 buildings



    The US Geological Survey says the magnitude 6.0 quake struck was 82km deep off the island's southern coast at 2 yesterday afternoon local time.

    This is the second deadly disaster to hit Indonesia this week, after Tropical Cyclone Seroja caused a severe downpour last Sunday that killed at least 174 people and left 48 still missing in East Nusa Tenggara province.
