Tears, grief mark 17th anniversary of Indonesia’s Bali bombings

On Saturday, hundreds of people gathered at a candlelight vigil to commemorate the 17th anniversary of the Bali bombings, lighting incense and laying wreaths. 202 people were killed in the terrorist attack on a Balinesian nightclub.

Like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, the Bali attack killed people from around the world. Australia lost the most people, with 88 Australians killed in the attack, but victims came from more than 20 countries, reports AFP.

Indonesian terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), an al Qaeda affiliate group, was responsible for the bombings. The leading bombers of the Bali attack have been jailed, executed, or killed by police.
