Book bomb Jakarta exploding [VIDEO NSFW]

Today the office of the Liberal Islam Network, a moderate Islamic group, received a book which seemed to be addressed to the group's former director and liberal Muslim scholar Ulil Abshar Abdalla. Because someone detected cables with a strong smell they suspected it might be a bomb and decided to call the police. So far so good. However, the police officer who arrived at the scene clearly tried to dismantle the bomb which ended bad resulting in four people injured including the policeman losing his hand.

Earlier that morning former Densus 88 antiterror police officer, Gen. Gories Mere also received a similar device which could be defused.


Earthquake & tsunami in Japan through the lens

I'm not known for being speechless but sometimes things happen that leave me speechless, realizing how tiny we are compared to natures forces and how lucky I am. Sometimes it's just better to say nothing and let the images tell the story...

My heart & thoughts goes out to the people of Japan, may God be with you.
