Bombings Rock Jakarta

Friday, July 17, 2009

A series of explosions killed at least nine people and injured at least 48 in Jakarta, Indonesia. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bomb blasts in the capital's luxury hotels. Indonesia suffered a number of bomb attacks — mainly linked to the militant group Jemaah Islamiah— in the first years of the century, but has been relatively peaceful since 2005. Joining The Takeaway from Jakarta with more of the story is Daniel Ziv, a filmmaker and the author of "Jakarta, Inside Out."

For accounts from an eyewitness to the bombings, watch the video below.
