Update as of 14:00 Sunday 13/10/02: 180 dead, over 300 injured. It's been blamed on
Islamic terrorists based on Java and is the largest terrorist attack in Indonesia's
history. The organization being blamed is called Jamal al-Islamiyya and the Australian
government believes it has links to al-Qaeda (al-Qaeda isn't a single organization
anyway, but more of a kind of movement; it's just the Arabic word for "the base" as in
"the base of operations").
