More than 188 people are dead and hundreds more were wounded after a bomb exploded at a night club in a popular tourist area in Kuta, Bali. The bombing came on the second anniversary of the Al Qaeda-linked attack against the USS Cole off Yemen which killed 17 sailors. Indonesia’s defense minister, Matori Abdul Djalil, has blamed Al Qaeda in connection with local extremists for the night club bombing. The U.S. State Department has warned U.S. citizens to defer travel to Indonesia.
