More attacks in Bali
Nearly three years after a bombing that killed more than 200 people in Indonesia, a coordinated series of bombs have killed at least 19 people and wounded many more.
Authorities in Indonesia say there were three separate bombs which detonated just minutes apart. All three were planted in areas heavily populated by foreign tourists. Two blasts occurred in Jimbaran, a seaside resort town, and another on Kuta beach, the site of the October 12, 2002 bombings.
Video of the scene in Kuta showed the glass windows of several upscale stores shattered, with glass littering the street, and the awning of Raja's Bar and Restaurant blown askew.
There have been local media reports that Westerners were among the casualties.From the BBC:
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.
