    Nineteen dead in more explosions

    Terror comes back to Bali
    From correspondents in Bali
    01oct05

    DEVELOPING STORY
    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.

    Damnit. I really wonder how long it is until Australia gets hit, I'm really worried. Almost three years since Bali Bombings I.

    That's terrible. You have to wonder whether there is anywhere which can really be considered safe these days. RIP the dead.

    I feel sorry for the local Balinese shopkeepers, hotel owners and people generally in the tourist trade. They're gonna be stuffed after this..

    But even more for the people and their families..

    CC to come up with this is all a CIA backed attack in 5..4..3

    I'm going to blunt, I hope those responsible really do rot for this (I have no sympathy for those behind it and quite frankly why should I?).

    On a less clamer note JI has been linked with this although as far as I am aware nothing has been confirmed, which is hardly surprising.

    Err- just because i raised doubts about 9/11 does not necessarily mean that ALL terrorist activities in the world are CIA funded/organised.

    Last time i checked, i think you asked for evidence about USA actively sponsoring terrorism and insurgency in the past and i've provided you with openly available details and instances and you didnt have anything to say after that.

    I was just talking to my mate about that very thing. They're the people who this is really affecting and presumably they are not even the targets.

    I don't think the suicide bombers really care. Fundamentalist extremists aren't exactly known for their tolerance.. 90% of Bali is Hindu. Would they really care if Hindu's are being affected? Especially if it's a side effect of teaching the "infidels" a lesson.

    Wait a second, Hindu's are also infidels..

    I think it's fair to assume that JI don't really care about anyone or anything but their own narrow point of view. Disgusting..
