Amazingly, someone happened to be recording video from inside one of the restaurants that were bombed.
The Indonesian television has started playing the tape continuously. Basically, a guy was walking through the restaurant with his video camera on, all of a sudden there was a bright flash of light with a booming noise, and everyone was screaming and running into the streets. Theyve replayed it in slow motion, and I actually recorded it with my own video camera. If anyone would be interested in viewing it, I may be able to upload it later if it would serve any purpose.
The T.V. stations have put together one of their famous tragedy tapes – scenes from the bombing, bodies on the floor, views of the victims in the hospital, etc. All while playing Everybody Hurts by R.E.M.
