Candle-light vigil held for Bali bomb victims

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hundreds of people gathered at the epicentre of the Bali bomb blasts on Friday (October 12) on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Commemorations were held at various sites in Bali, including Kuta, where the blasts destroyed two nightclubs and surrounding buildings, killing 202 people. Indonesian police had warned of possible attacks on commemorations for the 10th anniversary of the bomb blasts. Police brought in reinforcements from Jakarta and the military also helped with security, but the candlelight vigil in Kuta was peaceful. Since the bombings, Indonesia has been largely successful in containing militancy, and there have been no large-scale attacks on western targets since 2009 when suicide bombers attacked two hotels in the capital, Jakarta, killing nine people and wounding 53. Security forces detained nearly 600 militants after the bombings, most of whom have been jailed. Three main perpetrators, members of a militant group allied with al-Qaeda, were convicted and executed by firing squad in 2008.
