(2/16/2008)

A low-explosive device exploded in north Denpasar shortly after 11:00 p.m. on Friday night, February 15, 2008, injuring two men.

Initially reported by some Bali media as a gunshot attack because of the many holes inflicted on the victims' vehicle, police have now linked the incident to the explosion of a crude bomb, similiar to device that exploded at the parking lot of a Bali travel agency in Denpasar on February 5, 2008. No injuries resulted from the first bombing.

In the latest attack and suffering hand and thigh injuries were the occupants of a Taft SUV; the manager of a local Karaoke Bar, Dewa Made Segining (39), and a driver-security guard from the bar, Komang Suparmadi (39).

According to Tempo Interaktif, Suparmadi has been treated and allowed to return home while Segining remains hospitalized at Bali's Sanglah Hospital, protected by an armed police guard.

Forensic officers inspecting the scene of the bombing have found a number of holes including a 9 centimeter deep and 24 centimeter wide hole in the rolling door entrance of shop near the scene of the crime. Police are still trying to determine the motive for the attack, with press speculation that the crime may be tied to revenge or a the work of a local extortion ring.

Press reports say that the attack occurred on Gang Duku, a side street off Jalan Kebo Iwa, not far from the major Denpasar thoroughfare of Jalan Gatot Subroto. When Suparmadi, who was driving the vehicle, became aware that they were being followed he diverted to quieter back streets. As the vehicle entered Gang Duku a motorcyclist threw an item at the vehicle that was followed by the explosion. The motorcyclist immediately fled the scene.
