Australia warns of ‘advanced’ Muslim terror threat in Indonesia

SYDNEY (AFP) – Australia on Thursday (Feb 25) warned that terrorists might be in the “advanced stages of preparing attacks” in Indonesia and advised travellers to take precautions, just days after a similar warning about neighbouring Malaysia.

“Recent indications suggest that terrorists may be in the advanced stages of preparing attacks in Indonesia,” the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) said in an updated travel advisory.

“We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Indonesia, including Jakarta, Bali and Lombok, due to the high threat of terrorist attack.”
