Bali marks 15 years since deadly bombings

From NHK

A commemoration has been held on the Indonesian island of Bali to mark the 15th anniversary of the bombings that left more than 200 people dead.

On the night of October 12th, 2002, Jemaah Islamiah militants detonated bombs in a busy district of the resort island. 202 people lost their lives, many of them foreign tourists.

At Thursday's ceremony, relatives of the victims and local government officials offered prayers and laid flowers before a cenotaph built at the site of the bombings.

The mourners included the parents of a Japanese couple who died in the attack.

The mother of the husband said she still wants her son back alive.

An Australian man who lost his leg as a result of the attack said such incidents would never happen if terrorists understood their victims' pain.

Indonesian authorities have been on alert since a deadly suicide bombing in Jakarta earlier this year that is believed to be linked to the Islamic State militant group.
