Australian Terror Warning

Australia Concerned about Terror Attacks as Anniversary Dates of 2002 and 2005 Bali Bombings Approach.

(9/18/2010) The Australian Federal government is warning Australians headed to Bali to commemorate the 8th anniversary of the first Bali bombings of the danger of fresh terrorist attacks.

The first Bali bombing on October 12, 2002, hit two Kuta nightspots and claimed 202 lives of which 88 were Australians. Three years later, on October 1, 2005, another set of twin-attacks left 26 dead, including 4 Australians.

As in years past, commemorative ceremonies are expected to be held at "Ground Zero" the site of the 2002 bombing and the Australian consulate in Denpasar.

The Sydney Morning Herald quotes Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs who have warned: "Australians planning to visit Bali to attend the commemorative services should note that the government continues to recommend that Australians reconsider their need to travel to Indonesia, including Bali, due to the very high threat of terrorist attack."We continue to receive credible information that terrorists could be planning attacks in Indonesia which could take place at any time."

The Australian government is recommending people avoid places likely to be targeted by terrorists.
