Default We were warned, says Aussie in Bali


An Australian man says a friend who has lived in Bali for more than a decade warned him not to visit the island's popular Kuta area ahead of a string of deadly bomb blasts.

At least 25 people were killed and scores injured when bombs exploded in Kuta and Jimbaran last night.

Advertising executive Mick Colliss, who was visiting Bali for a rugby tournament, said he was told by a friend from his rugby club who now lives in Bali to avoid the crowded tourist area.

"One of the guys who is involved with the rugby club ... is now living up in Bali," Mr Colliss said from Denpasar.

"He's been here about 10 or 12 years and as a local he kind of knows the people to know.

"We got up here on the Wednesday and on the Thursday he said to us they had found some detonators around the place and then he said that some of his contacts he had - he called them sort of the Bali mafia - they had warned him.

"They said, 'look, with the guys coming up, if you are white, don't come into town on the Saturday night'.

"We just thought well, we didn't need to be told twice."

Mr Colliss said he and his friends obeyed the warning and stayed at their hotel.

"We were in the pool having a quiet Bintang [beer] and we said to each other ... what this guy, our mate, said about not going out on the Saturday night and then we went up to our rooms and we heard that the bombs had actually gone off," he said.

"So it was quite freakish that those warnings are out."

Officials have warned Australians against travelling to Indonesia for months but Foreign Minister Alexander Downer says there were no indications that this attack was imminent.

"This has come as a complete surprise to us but of course we have more general warnings from time to time," he said, adding there had been greater expectation for an attack to occur in Jakarta than Bali.
