JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- A bomb exploded inside a bus packed with commuters in central Indonesia, killing four people and injuring 17, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
The explosion occurred Wednesday afternoon as the bus carrying 25 people was headed toward Poso, the district capital of Central Sulawesi, a province with a history of violence between Muslims and Christians.
The bombing was the worst violence to hit the region since warring Muslims and Christians signed a peace agreement in December. It called into question recent statements by military leaders who insisted that peace was taking hold in Central Sulawesi.
