(1/11/2010)

The National News Agency Antara reports that despite rumors of a bomb attack, Bali made a safe transition from 2009 to 2010.

The spokesman for the Bali Police, Gde Sugianyar, said: "We were telephoned from everywhere saying that Bali will be rocked by a bomb, such as happened in 2002 and 2005. But thankfully, this was all rumor."

A statement issued on New Year's eve by the Bali Tourism Board (BTB) warning of the "indication of an attack" prompted the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta to issue an alert to U.S. citizens in Indonesia and via the Embassyís website. This, in turn, resulted in news of a possible attack in most international media.

Sugianyar said that the thousand of security officials already in place to ensure the peace on New Yearís eve received additional support in key areas following the report. "Even though this was rumor, the police were obliged to conduct sweeps and surveillance. What's more, the rumor emanated from the American Embassy," he explained.
