Erneuter Terroranschlag auf Bali

--- Fast genau drei Jahre nach den ersten blutigen Anschl�gen auf Discotheken auf Bali, z�ndesten anscheinend Selbstmordattent�ter erneut Bomben in dem Ferienidyll. Die "Weltgemeinschaft" ist mal wieder entsetzt Einen schon recht ausf�hrlichen Bericht hat die Washington Post:
Three bomb blasts ripped through restaurants on the resort island of Bali during the dinner rush Saturday night, killing at least 25 people and wounding more than 100 others, officials said. Two of the nearly simultaneous attacks, which some investigators blamed on a group linked to al Qaeda, targeted a long row of popular seafood eateries along the white sand beach of Jimbaran. A third explosion rocked the main tourist hub of Kuta, nearly 20 miles away, blowing out the second floor of a steakhouse and bar popular with foreigners, overturning furniture and spattering the floor with blood. ... The blasts marked the return of extremist violence to Bali almost three years after explosions devastated a pair of Kuta nightclubs on another sultry Saturday night, killing 202 people, mostly foreign tourists. Those attacks, on Oct. 12, 2002, were the worst acts of terrorism in the country's history and roused the government out of its denial that Muslim militants with global connections were plotting to make Indonesia a major battlefront. Since then, Indonesian security forces have moved aggressively against Jemaah Islamiah, a regional network implicated in other terrorist bombings. Dozens of members have been jailed in connection with the nightclub bombings, and four suspected ringleaders have been sentenced to death. But those intelligence and law enforcement efforts, which have received substantial U.S. and Australian assistance, have failed to stem attacks on Western targets that have come steadily once a year. Most fatalities appeared to be Indonesian.
