Bomb explodes in Poso

PALU, Central Sulawewsi (Antara): A bomb exploded Saturday evening in Poso next to an Army barrack killing a resident.
Nela Saliago, 22, died on the way to Poso General Hospital with injuries on his stomach and right arm. He was an employee at the local election commission.
The blast took place only about 100 meters from the headquarters of the auxiliary company of the 714th Sintuwu Maroso Poso Infantry Battalion.
An eyewitness, Eha, said the perpetrators were two men riding on a motorcycle coming from Poso city center toward Tentena and stopped right in front of Nela's house.
One of the attackers threw the bomb right into Nela's lap who was sitting in his house's terrace.
"The bomb exploded in seconds while the attackers espaced to the south," said Eha, who is Nela's friend.

This was reported in the Australian News as a woman killed last night. Same age, different gender.
