Anniversary silence for Bali bomb victims


The people of Bali today marked the six-month anniversary of the terrorist atrocity which killed nearly 200 with a one minute silence at the bomb site.

Balinese dignitaries, foreign consuls and diplomats attended the low-key ceremony on Legian Street in the popular tourist district of Kuta where they laid a number of wreaths in memory of those killed.

It was on October 12th - The Day Of Tears - that a double car bomb exploded outside Kuta's Sari nightclub, killing scores of holidaymakers on the paradise island.

A number of other private ceremonies were also held at temples across the island to remember those who died.
