Remembering Bali: October 12, 2002

On this day in 2002, some 202 people were killed after two bombs were exploded in a busy nightclub area in the Kuta tourist district of the Indonesian island Bali. The first bomb exploded in Paddy's Irish Bar and the second explosion occurred in a van outside the Sari nightclub. The bombings were the work of the al Qaida-linked terror group Jemaah Islamiyah. Memorial services in Kuta, Indonesia, London (on the HMS Belfast), and Sydney (as well as many other cities in Australia) mark what is still the deadliest day of terror since September 11.
