More than forty are reported injured, seven are in police custody and one dead after clashes broke out on Saturday, September 17, 2001, between the villagers of Kemoning and Budaga in Klungkung regency, northeast Bali.

Kompas.com, on Sunday, September 18th, quoted the spokesman for the Bali police, Hariadi, who said, “the situation has once again became calm and police were no longer guarding the location.”

The civil unrest occurred when villagers from Kemoning tried to install a sign marking the boundary of their village. That boundary, however, is at dispute with the adjoining villagers from Budaga who confronted the men trying to install the border makers with stones and sharp weapons.

At issue between the two villages is the control and ownership of two temples – Pura Dalem and Pur Prajapti - and a community cemetery.

In the ensuing altercation between the two villages, one resident from Budaga, Ariaka, (56), suffered serious wounds and was rushed to the Sanglah General Hospital where he was subsequently declared dead.

VIVAnews reports that police are awaiting the results of a forensic report on Ariaka's remains that reportedly suffered bullets wounds to the back and head, possibly inflicted by police who fired in an effort to disperse the crowds. Hariada said: “Regarding the suspicion that the death occurred because of official gunfire, we will have to wait for the official forensic report.

Hariadi said that fires shot by police to disperse the crowds used rubber bullets, in accordance with protocols in place for handling crowds. He said that any shot fired were only “warning shots” aimed at the legs of the rioters.

Officials at the the Klungkung General Hospital confirmed that some of the patients at the hospital were being treated for rubber bullet wounds and the surgical removal of rubber cartridges.

VIVAnews counted 30 villagers and 2 police injured in the outbreak and one dead.

Following the outbreak of social unrest, police have reportedly conducted raids on local homes and confiscated hundreds of machetes, clubs, crowbars, samurai swords and Molotov bombs.

On Sunday, September 18, 2011, Inspector General Totoy Herawan Indra, Chief of the Bali police , and Bali governor, Made Mangku Pastika, both visited the location of the fighting, the hospital in Klungkung were the injured are being treated and conducted meetings with local community leaders.

The Klungkung incident follows by just two months clashes between two villages in Bangli that also claimed the life of a local villager.
