JAKARTA – A major earthquake rocked Indonesia's Lombok island Sunday, the US Geological Survey reported, just a week after a quake killed 17 people on the holiday island. 

The latest quake had a magnitude of seven and struck just 10 km underground, the USGS said. 
Officials have issued a tsunami warning and urged people to move away from the ocean. 

"Please go to a place with higher ground, while remaining calm and not panicking," Dwikorita Karnawati, head of the agency for meteorology, climatology and geophysics, told local TV.
