More than 200 people were killed in the Bali bombing in October 2002.Praying that it is only a rumor:

“The Embassy said the warning initially came from the Bali governor, Mangku Pastika, and that it passed on his alert verbatim. The governor, however, said there was no information about a new terrorist threat.

“We never release(d) any warning related to terror on New Year’s Eve,” the governor’s office said in a statement after the Embassy released the warning.

“We however encourage both domestic and foreign tourists to be cautious,” the governor’s office said. “The terrorists hit Bali twice. Who knows what they will do next.””
