JAKARTA - An explosion on a ferry carrying 35 tourists between the Indonesian resort islands of Bali and Lombok on Thursday killed two people, an Indonesian and a Dutch national, and injured 13, police said.

"Two of them died, 13 were injured," Bali police spokesman Made Sudana said, adding the explosion happened off the coast of Lombok.

"It seems there was some sort of explosion on the boat, so there was an emergency with the engine."

Tourists on board included Australian, Korean, British, French, and German citizens, according to media.

Bali and neighboring Lombok are two of Indonesia's most popular holiday destinations.
