Bali struck by earthquake as leaders due to attend IMF summit

37 5 19

A 6.0-MAGNITUDE earthquake struck off the coast of Indonesia’s Bali in the early hours of Thursday, killing four amid a major International Monetary Fund (IMF) summit due to be attended by thousands of regional leaders and delegates.

Some attendees in the tourist Island for the IMF and World Bank annual meetings this week evacuated their hotels as the quake shook the island.

The latest quake came barely a fortnight after a quake-tsunami in Sulawesi, Indonesia, killed more than 2,000 people.

“I felt the quake for at least 30 seconds and I panicked. At first I didn’t want to go out but then I decided to leave,” Katharina Sudiyono, an Indonesian attendee at the summit, told AFP.
