News Update - Death Toll Now Stands at 182

List of Dead from Deadly Car Bomb Attack in Legian Continues to Grow.


(10/14/2002)

(Updates - 1700, 13 October 2002)

Local media sources are now confirming a total of 182 dead as the result of a car bar that exploded shortly after 11:00 p.m. on Saturday night, October 13. That bomb destroyed a popular night spot - The Sari Club and numerous other Kuta businesses. Authorities fear that number will grow with local hospitals reporting at least 15 people on the critically injured list from among the many people who suffered injuries.

The explosion occurred in an area bordered by Sari's Club and the nearby Padi's restaurant. Both establishments suffered massive damage and a fire still burning into the following morning, threatening area business and residences among the tightly packed construction of shops and night spots.

Second Blast Reported

Following reports of the explosion in Kuta's night time entertainment area, a second, seemingly simultaneous, explosion was reported by tempo.co.id in a residential area on the outskirts of Denpasar's Niti Mandala area in Renon.

That explosion took place approximately 100 meters to the south of the American Consulate on Jalan Hayam Wuruk.

Details remain sketchy with police still on the scene, but local residents report two loud blasts that destroyed a number of trees and caused damage to a local street side rain drain.

Initial reports are that no injuries occurred in connection with the second blast.
