10 minutes ago BALI, Indonesia - Several explosions occurred almost simultaneously Saturday in tourist areas of Bali island, causing casualties, police and a private Indonesian radio station said. A witness told the radio station at least two people were killed.

At least three blasts occurred along Jimbaran beach, which is lined with seafood restaurants commonly frequented by tourists, El Shinta radio reported. Witnesses saw at least three injured foreigners leaving the scene, the station said.

One witness told Metro TV that one of the explosions was close to the Four Seasons Hotel, which sits on the bay, and "people are still being evacuated."

Another explosion hit downtown Kuta, about 18 miles away, the radio said.

Bali police spokesman Lt. Col. Antonius Reniban confirmed that several blasts went off, but he could not say if they were bombs.

"There have been some explosions in Jimbaran and Kuta area, but we cannot give any details," he said. "Police are still investigating."

In 2002, bombings blamed on the al-Qaida-linked militant group Jemaah Islamiyah killed 202 people, mostly foreigners, on Bali island.

Since then, the same extremist group has been tied to at least two other bombings in Indonesia, both in the capital, Jakarta. Those blasts, one at the J.W. Marriott hotel in 2003 and the other outside the Australian Embassy in 2004, killed at least 23 people.

Western and Indonesian intelligence agencies have consistently warned that the group was plotting more attacks. Last month, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said he was especially worried the network was about to carry out more attacks.

8 Dead, 13 Injured
BALI, Indonesia - Bombs exploded almost simultaneously Saturday in two tourist areas of the Indonesian resort island of Bali, killing at least eight people and wounding 13 others, police and hospital officials said. The victims included foreign tourists. The blasts at Jimbaran beach and a bustling outdoor shopping center in downtown Kuta "were clearly the work of terrorists," police Maj. Gen. Ansyaad Mbai, a top Indonesian anti-terrorism official, told The Associated Press.

They always (so far) bomb the west side of the island. Maybe you should go to Sanur or Nusa Dua, rather than Kuta. I gather that tourism on the east side is booming, despite everything.

Only trouble is that the stuff young people like to do is largely around Kuta. Which is why it's an obvious target if you want to hit "decadent" Aussies.

BOMBERS HIT BALI AGAIN

More than 30 people have reportedly been killed in two bomb attacks on the popular tourist island of Bali, it is reported.


Still rising :sad:

:Rawwb:
Oct 1st, 2005, 05:24 PM
Bomb attacks on two busy tourist areas on the Indonesian resort island of Bali have killed at least 22 people.
About 50 others were injured in at least three blasts which took place just before 2000 local time (1200 GMT).

Two blasts occurred at Jimbaran - a seaside area packed with restaurants. Another was at Kuta beach, the area most popular with Western tourists.

In October 2002, bomb attacks blamed on Islamic extremists killed 202 people in Kuta, among them many foreign tourists.

Local TV has been showing pictures of people with terrible injuries and collapsed buildings.

A hospital official told Reuters news agency that at least 35 wounded foreigners had been taken to the island's main hospital.

Local media said the police had found a number of other unexploded devices.

The noise was deafening. Like a thousand fireworks going off at one time

Your experiences

The exact number of blasts, which happened almost simultaneously, was not clear. Some witnesses said they heard at least two explosions at each location.

A British tourist who was in a building next door to a restaurant that was hit in Kuta said there was a "thunderous boom" that caused all the shop's windows to blow out.

"It was just chaos," Daniel Martin told the BBC.

He said there were people lying in the streets with serious injuries, with everyone pitching in to help.

Journalist Maris Bakkalupulo went to the scene of the Kuta blast, and saw a noodle shop that had been badly damaged.

"It's completely gutted," she told the BBC. "Everything has been blasted out of the building, which is very mangled."




UK govt opens helpline

Another tourist in Bali, Anthony Brearley from Australia, said he heard two explosions in Kuta.

"I think the locals still think it's a gas explosion. I think they genuinely think it couldn't happen again," he told the BBC News website.

"All the Australian people automatically thought 'bombs', and they were gone.

Australia's Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer, has said at least one Australian was killed and three injured.

Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has condemned the blasts.

"These are clearly terrorist attacks because the targets were random and public places," he said.

"We will hunt down the perpetrators and bring them to justice."

Warnings

The blasts come less than two weeks before the third anniversary of bomb attacks that killed 202 people - many of them foreigners holidaying in Bali.

The 12 October 2002 bombings have been blamed on Jemaah Islamiah (JI), - a south-east Asian militant group which is said to have links with Osama Bin Laden's al-Qaeda network.

JI is also suspected of being behind a suicide bombing at the Marriott hotel in Jakarta that killed 11 people in 2003, and a suicide bombing at the Australian embassy last September in which eight people were killed.

The BBC's Tim Johnston in Jakarta says the authorities had warned that militants had been planning further attacks on Western targets in Indonesia, although there had been no particular alerts over the past few days.

Most of the attacks seem to have been in tourist areas, so I think they are not so much aimed at Indonesians per se, but at the foreigners in the country... (lots of Aussies go there don't forget...not to say that they are only targetting Aussie though...)

Well, Kuta Beach is a symbol of the Aussie lifestyle. People go there to surf, screw, drink, smoke dope, lie around on the beach topless, etc, etc. I love Kuta, though I'm more a Sanur kind of guy these days. I like a bit of middleclass luxury.

the thing that upsets me the most is how this cowards try to present themselves in the public as someone to be feared, they release videos of them training in the jungle with their big guns, they show hand to hand combat trainings of them, but when was the last time they actually used those kind of trainings? never, coz all they do is bomb and kill innocent people, theyre all cowards, all they can hurt are people who cant fight back, and about those damn suicide bombers, they think its an act of bravery, but in fact its really an act of cowardice, its one coward getting fooled or getting punked by another coward..fuck them all!! :fiery:
