Terror Returns to An Old Target
Today, Bali has been bombed again.
Terrorists brought death to Indonesia’s Bali paradise for the second time in three years Saturday, as blasts killed at least 36 people at two resort spots.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono condemned Saturday’s bombings as an act of terrorism. There were no immediate claims of responsibility.
In addition to the 36 fatalities, hospital officials said 103 people were wounded. A hospital emergency room where victims were treated resembled a war zone, journalist Sean Mulcahy told CNN.
You may remember the infamous 2002 Bali nightclub bombings, which killed 202 people just a little under three years ago today. They were the work of Jemaah Islamiyah, a Southeast Asian Islamist terror group allied with al Qaeda. No word yet on who is behind this latest tragedy for the people of Indonesia.
