Members of Jihadi Forums Vow To Avenge Bali Bombers
Shortly after the execution of the three men convicted of being behind the October 2002 attacks in Bali, Indonesia dozens of messages vowing revenge were posted on militant Islamist forums along with pictures of the funeral the three men.
"To the traitor government of Jakarta and its corrupt judges we say, by God we shall come after you no matter how long it takes," a member of al Shura forum wrote.
One of the three men, Ali Ghufran, is said to have left his will during a telephone conversation to his family just days before his execution and after bribing the prison guards. "Continue this jihad in support of God's glory and faith," he supposedly said.
Several embassies, including the U.S. embassy in Jakarta, warned that there was a very high risk of a terrorist attack against western tourists following the execution, though no official travel warning has been issued.
