Blast on ferry off Indonesia’s Bali island kills 2, injures 18

“An explosion on a ferry between the Indonesian resort islands of Bali and Lombok on Thursday (Sept 15) killed two foreigners and injured 18 others, the authorities said. The boat was carrying 35 passengers, all of whom were foreigners, and four crew members, and had just left Padang Bai port in eastern Bali on Thursday morning when the blast occurred. The blast appeared to have happened in the fuel tank, said the police, adding it was not caused by a bomb. Indonesia has a poor maritime safety record and there have been similar incidents in the past where no foul play was detected.”
