Bali, PNG both rocked by earthquakes

"Many summit participants woke up and asked questions, but we immediately sent out information to them that there had been an quake and the impact in Nusa Dua", he told AFP.

Constable Roy Michael said by phone from Rabaul police station: 'We felt the natural disaster a bit, but it was not too strong'.

Others in Nusa Dua, south of Bali's main worldwide airport, also panicked.

Earlier today, a magnitude 6.0 quake struck just off the popular island of Bali, where the International Monetary Fund and its sister lending organization, the World Bank, are holding annual meetings.

"The quake was very big". Stretches of the coastline were trashed by the tsunami that Nugroho said had waves up to 11 meters (36 feet) high. "I immediately woke up and took my little kids out of the house", Ni Komang Sudiani told AFP.

"All my neighbors were also running", said the mother of two.

The annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank are being held this week in Bali, which is attended by more than 19,000 delegates and other guests, including ministers and some leaders.

The natural disaster, which centered in East Java, resulted in the death of three people in Situbondo regency, East Java.

An official search and rescue effort following the devastating natural disaster and tsunami in Indonesia has been called off.

Perhaps as many as 5,000 victims of the 7.5 magnitude quake and tsunami on September 28 have yet to be found, majority entombed in flows of mud flows that surged from the ground when the quake agitated the soil into a liquid mire.

A total 2,065 bodies had been recovered since the twin disaster, the disaster agency said on Thursday.

The government has said it needs to call off the search for bodies because of concern about the spread of disease, and begin to focus on the next phase - rebuilding.

Rescue teams are working with residents to try to identify where victims could be.

The country was still reeling from an quake and tsunami last month that killed more than 2000 people.

Indonesia is situated in the Ring of Fire, an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur.
