Bali Bombings Leave 19 Dead, 51 Injured - Yahoo! News

BALI, Indonesia - Bombs exploded almost simultaneously Saturday in two tourist areas of the Indonesian resort island of Bali, killing at least 19 people and wounding 51 others, police and hospital officials said.

The victims included at least two Americans.

The blasts at Jimbaran beach and a bustling outdoor shopping center in downtown Kuta "were clearly the work of terrorists," police Maj. Gen. Ansyaad Mbai, a top Indonesian anti-terrorism official, told The Associated Press.

The blasts occurred nearly three years to the day that bomb attacks in Kuta killed 202 people, mostly foreigners. Those attacks were blamed on the al-Qaida-linked terror group Jemaah Islamiyah.
