TV here in Australia isn’t reporting live at this stage but most stations have broken news flashes on the new bombings. Reports of 30-40 injured and between 3-5 dead. Bali is one of Australia’s favorite foreign tourist destinations (and a quicker flight from Blog Herald HQ then Sydney). The previous Bali bombings in 2002 killed some 100 Australian tourists and was described at the time as Australia’s 9/11.
Update: at this stage the SMH has the best coverage, 19 reported dead and many more injured as at 3:10PM GMT. Late into the night here (I’m in the same timezone as Bali) so more news will probably emerge as I sleep. Certainly CNN and FoxNews were way behind on the story at this stage although I suspect this will change. There will be many families in Australia tonight who will be deeply concerned for relatives.
