There have off course been other atrocities, involving British citizens, since the Bali 2002 bombings. For instance, three explosions killed 23 people and injuring many, including two Britons in the Red Sea resort Dahab on April 24th 2006. See here for a list of attacks so far involving British citizens abroad (The Maldives being the most recent).
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall unveiled a permanent memorial dedicated to all 202 victims at the foot of Clive Steps close to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on the fourth anniversary, October 12th 2006.
The bombings highlighted how ill prepared the UK government was in the post 9/11 era for the British public traveling abroad.
At 23:08 on Saturday 12th October 2002, two bombs were detonated, approximately 30 seconds apart, on Jalan Legian in Kuta, Bali. The first bomb was detonated by a suicide bomber in Paddy’s Bar. A second much larger bomb, was detonated in a van outside the Sari club which is opposite the street from Paddy’s bar. The driver of the van was also a suicide bomber. Both bombs killed 202 people, 28 of which had British citizenship.
