A strong earthquake has jolted the popular Indonesian resort island of Bali, injuring 46 people.
The quake struck southern parts of the island shortly past 11 AM on Thursday.
The US Geological Survey says the quake was centered offshore, about 100 kilometers southwest of the main city of Denpasar, at a depth of 35 kilometers and with an estimated magnitude of 6.1.
In Denpasar, 29 students and teachers were injured at a senior high school. They fell down or were hit by falling roof tiles while fleeing the building.
At a resort in Nusa Dua, attendees of an international conference, including senior government officials from the Asia-Pacific region, were hastily evacuated from the building.
A tourist from Japan staying at a hotel in Nusa Dua said she was scared by the jolt, which reminded her of the earthquake that hit northeastern Japan on March 11th.
