Bali bomb attacks claim 26 lives

ImageThree bomb attacks in two tourist areas on the Indonesian resort island of Bali have killed at least 26 people - among them foreign nationals.
More than 50 others were injured as blasts ripped through three restaurants - two in the Jimbaran beach resort, the third in Kuta 30km (19 miles) away.

Local TV has been showing pictures of bloodied and confused survivors and collapsed buildings.
 The noise was deafening - like 1,000 fireworks going off at one time

Local media said police had found a number of other unexploded devices.
However, BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner says the finger of suspicion is already pointing towards the extremist regional group Jemaah Islamiah (JI) which was blamed for the 2002 bombings.
