Comments: Blasts in Bali Tourist Area

I was about to say terrorists was a safe assumption (what was the last explosion you heard about in Bali?) but:
BALI, Indonesia (AP) - Bombs exploded almost simultaneously Saturday in two tourist areas of the Indonesian resort island of Bali, killing at least 19 people and wounding 51 others, police and hospital officials said.

The victims included at least two Americans.

The blasts at Jimbaran beach and a bustling outdoor shopping center in downtown Kuta "were clearly the work of terrorists," police Maj. Gen. Ansyaad Mbai, a top Indonesian anti-terrorism official, told The Associated Press.

Thanks for the update, Jay. When I first read it I misread 191 instead of 19 and flashed back to three years ago.

Time to get grim again.
