An earthquake with a magnitude of 4.8 shook the island of Bali on Saturday morning, killing at least three, the agency said.

The agency added, in a statement, that the quake affected Karangasem and Bangli districts on the eastern side of the tourist island, adding that the search operations had ended, but the authorities were continuing to monitor the situation.

The agency noted that the earthquake triggered a landslide that killed two people, while a third person was killed by falling debris, according to Reuters.

The US Geological Survey said a 4.8-magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of Banjar Wangsian, at a depth of 10 km.

Local media reported that there was no significant damage in the rest of the island.

The quake was felt on the neighboring island of Lombok.

It is noteworthy that Bali reopened its doors to tourists last Thursday after applying restrictions for 18 months to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, but their arrival is expected to start later this month.
