Bali Police personnel on Tuesday managed to safely detonate a device found earlier in the day inside a bag in the popular tourist district of Ubud in Gianyar regency.

In 2002, a group of people linked to extremist group Jemaah Islamiyah launched bombing attacks in Bali that killed 202 people. Three years later, a series of suicide bombings on the resort island by terrorists claimed the lives of 20 people and injured more than 100 others.
