(7/11/2005)

The Thursday, July 7, 2005, morning rush hour attacks on innocents people traveling on London's public transport system has left at least 50 dead and 700 injured. This tragedy now joins the growing list of major cities around the world who have fallen victim to mindless acts of terror: New York, Bali, Madrid, Istanbul and, now, London.

Indonesia, also a victim of past terrorist attacks, wasted no time in condemning the the latest outrage. Foreign Minister Hassan Wirjuda reproached the attacks as "brutal" and offered his condolences and sympathies to the families of the victims.

"With the bombings at several points above and under the ground, this shows that acts of terrorism can happen anywhere and anytime. No single country is immune," Wirjudha told reporters just hours after receiving news of the latest attacks.

Presidential Statement

Indonesia's President took pause from the celebration of the marriage of his Son on Friday to issues his formal condolences following the London bombings. In a written statement issued to the press, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said, "I am completely confident that Prime Minister Tony Blair can overcome this tragedy and that the inhuman perpetrators of this attack will be caught and punished in accordance with the law."

Al Qaeda to Blame?

While police are still investigating the four explosions, British Foreign Minister Jack Straw has labeled the attacks as having the hallmarks of al Qaeda with his boss, Prime Minister Tony Blair, publicly blaming "Islamist extremists" for the mayhem.

Indonesia, at one time viewed as "soft" in the war on terror, has in recent days prior to the London attack undertaken massive sweeps against those suspected of having terrorist links. Newly installed Indonesian Chief of Police Sutanto has vowed to carry on the hunt for those terrorists still at-large and believed to be living in Indonesia. Similarly, Indonesian President Yudhoyono has pledged his government's full support in the war on terror, calling for greater international cooperation in investigating and tracking those responsible for such crimes.

PATA Statement

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) has condemned the indiscriminate terrorist acts in London of July 7, 2005, and sent its condolences to families and friends of those killed or injured.

In a statement issued by the international association of travel professionals, PATA reported that it has contacted the PATA UK Chapter and its colleagues at VisitBritain to offer the global PATA family's support.

PATA President and CEO, Mr Peter de Jong said: "Increasingly, tourists are aware that terrorists can strike anywhere anytime. After the tsunami, PATA urged tourists to visit tsunami-affected areas as part of the recovery process. Today we ask tourists who intended to visit the UK to continue with their visit."

"The resolve and unity of civilized people will prevail," he added.
