No indication impending bombing attack in Bali: Police
DENPASAR, Bali (Antara): Police personnel in the field have so far not found any
indication that another terrorist bombing attack is going to happen in Bali as intimated
in a travel advisory issued by the Australian government, a police spokesman said.
"We have yet to detect signs that Bali will again experience a bombing attack in the
near future," Bali Police spokesman, Sr. Comr. AS Reniban, said Tuesday.
Australian government has issued a travel warning suggesting that bombs were likely
to explode in Indonesia's most popular resort island, just like ones in 2002 and 2005.
The warning also said that bombs were possible to hit the capital city of Jakarta.
Reniban said the Australian government's suspicion could be true but police had so
far not found any clues about an impending bombing attack in Bali.
"Neither the intelligence agents we have spread in the field nor the many sources of
information we have in the community have so far reported indications of an imminent
terrorist action in Bali," he said.
He called on the public to remain calm and not to be upset or worried while keeping
alert towards any unusual occurrence in their immediate surroundings. He also urged
them to report any suspicious activity to the police. (**)
