TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Singapore's Law and Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam said that he and 11 members of the Singaporean delegation are safe after a 6.9 earthquake hit Lombok last night.

Mr. Shanmugam and the delegates are now waiting to fly out of Lombok.

Channel News Asia, reported on Aug. 6 that Mr. Shanmugam had posted a Facebook post saying he was in a hotel room when the eartqquake struck.

"We went to the airport and waited at the police's post. The officers there are kind," Mr. Shanmugam said.

The minister and the 11 delegates were in Lombok to attend a sub-regional counter-terrorism meeting co-hosted by Indonesia and Australia.

Meanwhile, Australia's Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, who was also there for the meeting, said the quake was strong enough to knock him down.

Mr. Dutton, the Australian delegates, and partners from New Zealand, have all been evacuated from their hotels and are getting ready to move to Bali.

Last night's earthquake's epicenter was at a depth of 15 kilometers off the north coast of Lombok. The quake triggered a tsunami warning until it was lifted at 8:25 local time.
