    I imagine there will be more attacks against the embassy until they free her.

    That's what I always assumed - an embassy was soverign soil of the nation it represents.

    Makes a good scary quote though.

    It's not a "terror attack", although the Indonesian government was very quick to issue a travel warning, for Indonesians travelling to aussie.

    This incident was most likely some local idiots, a tad angry with the Corby verdict, and just causing trouble. Maybe they got a few too many beers into them, and came up with this wacko scheme?

    Incidents like this do not help Corby, and most aussies would think this incident at the Indonesian embassy was appauling, and uncalled for.

    IMO, this incident is being blown all out of proportion, by the Indonesian media, looking for some payback, to the aussie media's criticisim of the Corby case.

    Let's hope not.

    But there's always some wankers who will do the wrong thing, thinking they're being patriotic etc. Sure, I'm far from happy with the outcome of the Corby case, but I along with 99.99999% of aussies would never stoop to such low and cowardly levels and attack back like that.
