Bali Bombing Blasts
As hundreds of tourists and revellers occupy the local bars and clubs to dance and chat the night away, their celebrations are interrupted by the sound of a large explosion going off in a nearby building. The crowds spill out onto the streets searching for the source of the original explosion, and in the process, they are placed even closer and closer to danger. 15 seconds after the first blast goes off, a second, much more powerful blast occurs from a white Mitsubishi van parked in the middle of the Bali street, which would take the lives of over 200 people. In a matter of minutes the Kuta district had been transformed from a thriving tourist spot, to a complete war zone.
