Indonesian police looking for two bombs ahead of Bali anniversary

Indonesian police are racing against time to find two bombs they fear could be used by Islamic militants to stage a terrorist attack ahead of the October 12 Bali bombing anniversary, a police spokeswoman said. News of the missing bombs came as Australia warned victims and their families to be on guard against new attacks if travelling to Bali for the commemoration. Investigators obtained information about three ready-to-use bombs from suspects arrested following the JW Marriott Hotel car bombing on August 5. One of the bombs had already been used, in the Marriott attack, which police have blamed on the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terror network, Bali police spokeswoman Pangasihan Gaut told AFP. But the whereabouts of the other two “are still unknown”, Gaut added. The suspects were snared in a series of arrests made by police in Jakarta, Sumatra and Central Java provinces after 12 people died in the hotel attack. It is not yet known whether the two bombs were made specifically for new attacks during next month’s Bali bombing remembrance, Gaut said. Full Story
