Last six hikers rescued off Mount Rinjani”

However, they added that the search for another six missing in the mountains tourists continue.

Hundreds of hikers including British tourists have been evacuated from an Indonesian volcano after landslides left them trapped on the mountain.

At least six British hikers are believed to have safely descended an Indonesian volcano after an quake struck on Lombok island, killing 16 people and injuring more than 160.

In 2004, a tsunami triggered by a magnitude 9.3 undersea quake off the coast of Sumatra in western Indonesia killed 220,000 people in countries around the Indian Ocean, including 168,000 in Indonesia.

The rescuers managed to recover the corpse of Muhammad Ainul Taksin, a 26-year-old Thai hiker, who died of head injuries.

"I felt the earth move. and thought 'Huh?"

"I saw landslides and there were some people falling down".

A male friend said he watched parts of Rinjani's slopes collapse.

Hikers were able to start climbing down on Monday after guides discovered an alternate route that was unaffected by the landslides.

At least 16 people were killed by falling debris and several hundred injured after Sunday's magnitude-6.4 quake, the National Disaster Management Agency said. "They are all healthy and safe".

A joint evacuation team made up of 244 personnel from Indonesia's search and rescue agency Basarnas, the military, police, Mount Rinjani National Park Office, medics and volunteers has been working non-stop to evacuate the last of visitors to the mountain over the weekend.

"They were all exhausted but in good condition and were checked by our medical teams on the ground upon arrival", he told AFP.

The quake was followed by series of aftershocks, which blocked the hiking routes that crisscross the mountain.

Villagers walk near destroyed homes in Lombok.

Among the dead are one Malaysian, with six injured, the Malaysian foreign ministry said.
