Disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said on Wednesday the information from the Antara sources was incomplete and had not been cross-checked for duplication. An interagency meeting will be held Friday to compare information, Nugroho said.

Many people used the word "selamat" - meaning "to survive" - as they wrote about the magnitude 7.0 quake, which, CBS reports, killed at least 131 people.

The death toll from a powerful quake on the Indonesian island of Lombok rose above 130 on Wednesday, as authorities appealed for food, clean water and medical help for some 156,000 people forced from their homes.

The Indonesian military said that three Hercules transporter planes packed with food, medication, blankets, tents and water tanks had arrived in Lombok.

The governor of the province that includes Lombok, the military, the national search and rescue agency and regent of North Lombok issued different death tolls on Wednesday that ranged from 226 to 381.

Tens of thousands of homes, businesses and mosques were levelled by the quake, which struck on Sunday as evening prayers were being said across the island.

"We are still waiting for assessments from some of the more remote areas in the north of the island, but it is already clear that Sunday's quake was exceptionally destructive", said Mr Rassi.

Rescuers have found three bodies and also managed to pull one man alive from the twisted wreckage of the mosque, reduced to a pile of concrete and metal bars, with its towering green dome folded in on itself.

Authorities on the island have urgently appealed for medicine, food and clean water for some 156,000 people who have been displaced by the disaster.

Hotels and other buildings in both locations are not allowed to exceed the height of coconut trees. In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 quake off Sumatra triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries.
