In early October 2002 terrorists exploded a huge bomb outside two popular nightclubs in Bali
killing nearly 300 young people, mostly vacationing Australians. These images were taken two weeks later
on a day that (then) President Mrs. Makawati Sukarnoputri visited the site.
She is shown wearing a peach-colored outfit and with a rainbow-colored umbrella held over her head for shade.
After most of the debris had been cleared a couple of months later,
a purification ceremony was held to purge the site of evil spirits (last two photos.)
