The quake already killed three people in Java, but no deaths have yet been reported in Bali.

At least three people were killed as a shallow 6.0-magnitude quake struck off the coast of Indonesia's Java and Bali islands Thursday, a government official said.

The quake was also felt in Surabaya, the capital of East Java province, which is about 200km from Situbondo, the nearest town to the quake epicentre. The US Geological Survey website stated the quake had a 6.0 magnitude.

The latest quake to hit the stricken country on the Ring of Fire is located in the Bali Sea, with a depth of 10.4km. People poured out of their houses.

Hazardous tsunami waves from the quake were possible within 300 km of the epicentre along Papua New Guinea coastlines, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

Besides the ASEAN Leaders' Gathering, Bali is also hosting the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, with 12,000 to 15,000 people attending.

Indonesian authorities Thursday called off the search for thousands still believed missing since a powerful quake and tsunami devastated Palu city a fortnight ago, killing more than 2,000 people.

According to UFC president Dana White , McGregor has since called him and asked for a rematch with Khabib . The NSAC is expected to file complaints on Nurmagomedov and McGregor for their roles in the incident.

The state disaster mitigation agency said the search was being stepped up and focused more intensely on areas where many people are believed to be buried.

Save the Children's affiliated organisation in Indonesia said there could be as many as 1,500 children still missing.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said waves less than 0.3 meter high could be expected on coastlines in Papua New Guinea and neighboring Solomon Islands.

The official search for bodies will end Thursday with mass prayers in hard-hit neighborhoods, but Nugroho said volunteers and family members can continue searching.

"This is the only thing I can do, otherwise I would go insane", he said, choking back tears.

In a statement, Indonesia's foreign ministry explained that foreign aid workers must first coordinate with the national team, local agencies or non-governmental organisations leading the rescue and recovery effort. Nugroho said there's no need for worldwide aid other than the four priorities identified by Indonesia - tents, water treatment units, generators and transport. No one knows how many people are yet to be found in Palu's ruined neighbourhoods, but it could be as many as 5,000, the disaster agency said. Groups that sent foreign personnel to the disaster zone are "advised to retrieve their personnel immediately", according to those guidelines.
