Indonesia + Jakarta

The Australian embassy bombing in Jakarta took place on September 9, 2004 in Indonesia.

A one-tonne car bomb, which was packed into a small delivery van, exploded outside the Australian embassy at Kuningan District, South Jakarta, at about 10:30 local time, killing 9 people including the suicide bomber, and wounding over 150 others. The explosion gutted the Greek embassy on the 12th floor of an adjacent building. Numerous office buildings surrounding the embassy were also damaged by the blast, which shattered windows in buildings 500 metres away, injuring many workers inside, mostly by broken glass.

  • The components for the bomb were kept under this bed in a remote village for two weeks before being transported to Jakarta
