Bomb blasts rock Bali
02 October 2005

BALI: Four bomb blasts have ripped through popular tourist areas on the famous Indonesian resort island of Bali, at least killing 32 people including foreigners and wounding over 100, officials said.


Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono condemned as terrorism the nearly simultaneous blasts, which come almost exactly three years after militants linked to al Qaeda bombed two nightclubs in Bali, killing 202 people, mainly foreign tourists.

Police confirmed three blasts at separate restaurants packed with evening diners, two at popular seafood eateries on Jimbaran Beach and one at Kuta Beach in an area surrounded by shops.

"People were running for their lives. Foreign tourists were wounded. I am so scared," Yosi, 24, a shop owner in Kuta Beach near the blast site told Reuters.

Officials said 32 dead had been brought in, including two Australians.

Over 100 people, including five South Koreans, had been wounded, officials said.

New Zealand Foreign Affairs Minister Phil Goff said embassy staff are starting to check morgues and hospitals today in the wake of three bombs which rocked the Indonesian resort island of Bali early overnight.

Mr Goff said there were no reported deaths or injuries of New Zealanders but that it could change over time.

Members of the public who wish to make enquiries concerning relatives or friends who may be holidaying in Bali can call the Ministry of Foriegn Affairs and Trade on 0800 432 111.

Australian Jason Childs said he was having dinner along Jimbaran Beach when the bombs went off.

"We helped a few victims on the sand there on the beach and there were a few people lying ... on the tables which are out on the beach, dead," Childs told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

"I didn't want to walk in there too far, too scared another bomb would go off, and everyone started screaming 'there's another bomb' and everyone started running."

The site of the Jimbaran blasts is near the upmarket Four Seasons Hotel.

Inside the badly damaged Raja restaurant and bar in Kuta Beach, a popular eatery, blood was spattered on the floor. Shattered glass from other shops and cafes littered the street. People were crying and looked shocked, television pictures showed. Wounded Indonesian victims sat on the pavement, while foreigners appeared to be in panic.

Yudhoyono said it was too soon to blame anyone for the attacks, which security experts said bore the hallmarks of Jemaah Islamiah, a network seen as the regional arm of al Qaeda.

Police have blamed Jemaah Islamiah for a series of attacks against Western targets in the world's most populous Muslim nation in recent years, including the 2002 Bali blasts, which also took place on a Saturday night. They have launched roughly one major attack each year since then.

"This is clearly a terrorist act ... We will catch the perpetrators and punish them," Yudhoyono told an impromptu news conference in Jakarta, adding he would go to Bali on Sunday.

Sorry but, I rage at these ignorant, shit-eating, worthless wastes of human flesh that take lives in the name of a witless and powerless god. They should be anointed with pig-shit before being put to a slow and very painful death. So I tend not to post in this type of topic.
