Terror comes back to Bali
From correspondents in Bali
AT LEAST three people were killed and dozens wounded in four explosions on Bali last night - only days short of the third anniversary of the terrorist attack there that killed 202, including 88 Australians.
At least 40 were injured, including at least three Western tourists.
Witnesses said they saw body parts, including a severed head and a leg.
One blast was reported at Kuta Square, but three rocked Jimbaran Beach, about 30km south of the famed strip. The beach is lined with popular tourist seafood restaurants.
Police confirmed several blasts went off, but they could not say if they were bombs.
The areas have been cordoned off and staff from nearby businesses were ordered out.
The explosions rocked a hotel and department store. The blasts ripped through the holiday island about 9pm Melbourne time - one near the Four Seasons Hotel in Jimbaran, and 10 minutes later near the Matahari department store in the centre of the popular tourist centre of Kuta.
No AFL teams are reported to be in the area. Brisbane cancelled its Bali end-of-season trip due to reports of unrest and will go to Cairns instead.
A witness, Wayan Kresna, told El Shinta radio station: "I helped lift up the bodies. There was blood everywhere. Many people have been brought to the hospital."
Mr Kresna said he had been involved in the aftermath of a bomb in a Jimbaran Beach seafood restaurant.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono warned in late August that terrorists were likely to launch an attack in Indonesia in the next two months - during what has become known in the country as "bomb season" because of a series of attacks at this time over the past three years.
