9 Bombs Found on Indonesia Bus


Police in Indonesia say they have found nine bombs on a bus in West Java province.

The announcement by National Police Chief General Da'i Bachtiar comes amid a nationwide security crackdown following international warnings of a possible terror attack in the country.

The police chief said the explosives were found Friday, stuffed into several tubes. He said authorities are looking for those responsible for the bombs.

Earlier this week, Australia's foreign ministry said it received credible new information specifically mentioning a Hilton hotel in Indonesia as a possible terror target.

Indonesia has tightened security at the country's three Hilton hotels.

Similar travel warnings have been issued in recent days by the United States, Japan, Britain and New Zealand.
