Two bombs explode in Jakarta :40

CTV News Staff Two bombs rocked the parking garage of a Jakarta shopping mall Sunday, injuring several people. "The two bombs were made of high explosives that were detonated with timers linked to the battery of one car," Jakarta police spokesman Lt. Col. Anton Bachrul Alam said. Though a number of people were injured, no one was killed in the blast, paramedics said. Eight cars were damaged.

The explosions came just days after Indonesian President Megawati Sukarnoputri met with U.S. President George W. Bush at the White House offering support of an American retaliatory attack against Afghanistan. Indonesia is the world's most populous Islamic nation, with Muslims amounting to almost 90 per cent of the country's 200 million residents.

A number of militant religious groups, some with alleged links to foreign terrorist networks, have threatened local assaults if the U.S. launches military strikes against Islamic nations.

No one has claimed responsibility for Sunday's bombings and police say it is too early to determine if the attacks were politically motivated. The same mall was hit by a bomb August 1. A Malaysian man with alleged ties to an extremist Islamic group that espouses jihad, was later arrested. Several Indonesians, also linked to recent Christian church bombings, were also detained. Police tied them to groups that have been embroiled in a bloody conflict with Christians that has killed thousands over the last three years.
