Indonesian Insp. Gen. Saud Usman Nasution says more terrorists escaped Sundays raid:
He called on Balinese to remain alert, due to an imminent threat of terrorist attacks. He added that police are keeping several areas in Bali under surveillance and monitoring the movements of other terror suspects still on the loose.
One of the cafes believed to be targeted by the now dead men is the Vida Loca cafe in the tourist area of Seminyak in South Bali.
Unyil Yunitasary, the operational manager of the cafe...speculated her cafe may have been targeted “because it’s packed and most of our customers are foreign tourists.”
