With its large Muslim population, Indonesia has been a terrorist target in recent weeks. Alerts were heightened after a failed plot to blow up a church on Good Friday, and in light of other attempted attacks on moderate Muslims and police forces. Now that bin Laden is dead, the country is even more worried about the possibility of his al Qaeda followers striking back. The Indonesian island of Bali, a popular tourist spot, has stepped up security as well, and police have gone as far as to check vehicles surrounding the Kuta Beach area, where 202 people were killed during 2002 bombings (three in total, including a car bomb and a suicide bomber) orchestrated by a violent Islamist group. The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta has asked for increased security, too.
