WASHINGTON -- The State Department issued a travel warning for
Indonesia, citing Aceh, Maluku, Papua, West Timor, Central and West
Kalimantan (Borneo) and Central Sulawesi as places to avoid.
"Indonesia is experiencing a major political transition, and
unrest and violence can erupt with little forewarning anywhere in
the country," the Department said.
Locations of religious and political significance as well as
businesses have been targets of bombings, the agency said, adding
"those who must travel to Indonesia, or who are resident there,
should exercise extreme caution."
