INDONESIA--A bomb squad from Central Sulawesi Police disarmed a homemade bomb found in the backyard of a Poso resident's house on Thursday.
The homeowner, Yulianti, 63, who lives in the Landangan village, said she discovered the bomb in her backyard at 6:30 a.m.
"There was something like a can of butter that was wrapped in a plastic bag but some yellow cables could be seen coming out of it. We, as a family, were really afraid and reported this to the nearest security personnel," Yulianti said.
Two tactical vehicles from Central Sulawesi's bomb squad arrived at 8:00 a.m. to disarm the bomb on site before it was taken to the Poso Police headquarters.
Yulianti said the house was mostly empty the previous evening as the family had been at church.
Police have cordoned off the area where the bomb was found and have combed the area for clues. Personnel on site said the home-assembled bomb contained chemicals urea and nitrate, a detonator and a cable network. (Source)
