The attack on Bali was al Qaeda’s next major bombing of western targets. The key events that lead up to the Bali bombing were like the attack on the twin’s towers (9/11). They bombed Bali because they wanted to kill as many tourists as they could. The bombing was caused by three bombs; a backpack mounted device carried by a suicide bomber and a large car. Both of these bombs were near popular nightclubs in Kuta. The third bomb was a smaller device and was located outside the United States consulate in Denpasar, causing only minor damage. There was a big reaction from the people that they were very unhappy because they had loosed a friend or family member. There was a big group of the al Qaeda’s that did the bombing and for the people who were counted by the police. The consequences for them were that they were either executed or killed by the police.
