Book Bombs In Indonesia

Jihadis seek to kill individuals who oppose them

Indonesian Islamic extremists’ war on those they consider apostates appears to be taking an ominous new turn with the mailing of three bombs concealed in books to apparent opponents. The bombs raise fears that jihadi terrorists are now broadening their attacks to go after those who either battle terrorism directly or support a liberal interpretation of Islam. Although Indonesia has been the focus of a long series of bombings of hotels and nightclubs including one that took the lives of 202 people and injured 240 more in Bali in 2002, they have not previously targeted single individuals.
