US embassy issues Bali New Year attack warning

The US embassy in Indonesia said yesterday it had received warning of a New Year terrorist attack on the resort island of Bali, the scene of multiple bombings targeting Westerners.
"There is an indication of an attack to Bali tonight," it said in a statement to US citizens carried on its website, quoting a message from Bali governor Mangku Pastika.
The embassy said the Bali Tourism Board had widely distributed the governor's message, which added: "Please don't panic, but put your security system to full alert."
Police said 7,000 security personnel including US-trained counter-terrorism units were being deployed around bars and nightclubs on Bali as the island prepared to celebrate the New Year.
