Bali Bomb Suspect: Americans Were Targets

A key suspect in last year’s Bali bombings said Wednesday the intended targets of the attack were “the enemies of Islam,” especially Americans, and that he regretted the high Australian death toll. Ali Imron made the comments to reporters after police handed to prosecutors their dossiers on him and 13 other suspects. The move is a precursor to formal charges being filed against the men for their alleged role in the Oct. 12, 2002 nightclub attacks that killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists. Another suspect, alleged mastermind Imam Samudra, shouted out “Destroy America!” and “God is great!” to reporters gathered at the Bali prosecutor’s office.
