Bali bombings fail to shake tourist confidence

Almost 3 years after the initial blasts the holiday paradise of Bali has again been targeted by bombers. Leaving 27 people dead the chilling certainty that bombers were directly targeting Western tourist resorts could have catastrophic implications for the tourist industry.

Yet unlike the bombings of 2002 this weekends' tragedy has not resulted in people flocking to the airport desperate for a flight out of Bali. Perhaps it is our increasing awareness that nowhere is safe from suicide bombers, but it seems recent events will not destroy the lucrative Indonesian tourist trade.
