At least three persons died and four more were injured in Indonesia after an earthquake measuring 6-magnitude on the Richter scale shook the Bali Sea early on Thursday, official said.

The sea is located between the islands of Bali and Java. Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesperson for the Indonesian Disaster Prevention Agency tweeted images of several destroyed buildings that the victims were found in the Sumenep district of Java.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the hypocentre of this tremor was located about 10 km deep and below the ocean floor, Efe news reported.
