Government urges Aussies to delay Bali travel

AUSTRALIANS are being urged to reconsider travel to Bali after the Government's "very high threat" warning over the New Year period.

However, there was confusion yesterday about the origin of a New Year's Eve warning to tourists on the holiday island, which was circulated by the US Embassy in Bali.

It quoted the Governor of Bali, Mangku Pastika, warning there was an indication an attack was planned for New Year's Eve.

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs also posted the warning on its SmartTraveller website, saying it was circulated by the Bali Tourism Board, and urged travellers to be alert to the statement.
