Anyone have any more info? Media hasn't jumped on it in any way... could it have been an accident? Sounds fishy, to say the least

PARIS, France -- An explosion outside the Indonesian Embassy in Paris has wounded nine people, a fire commander has said.

The cause of the blast early Friday morning is unclear but French radio station Europe-1 quoted firefighters as saying the explosion took place on the embassy's ground floor.

Police have cordoned the area off in the exclusive 16th district of Paris, French media reports say.

Windows were blown out nearby, and rescue workers warned nearby residents to stay indoors, according to the radio report.

Rescue workers led several people from the scene, which was crowded with fire trucks and ambulances. The firefighters cited by Europe-1 said nine people received light wounds.

Indonesia is preparing to inaugurate a new leader after President Megawati Sukarnoputri was defeated in an election last month.

Former general Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono won a landslide victory in the September 20 polls and is due to be inaugurated on October 20.

It was the first time the world's most populous Muslim nation had directly voted for their president.

The ballot was praised as a key step in the country's transition to democracy after the downfall of ex-dictator Suharto in 1998.

Appeasement seems to be working out real swell for the frogs.

I would be rather entertained if they broke out the GIGN for some elaborate albeit public display of terrorist bitch-slapping.

"ACTIVE COMPLIANCE"

In the book "The Seven Myths Of Gun Control" there is a chapter on ACTIVE COMPLIANCE. Basically, it says that people are taught 'If you do everything the bad nasty people want, They will take what they want and go away'

Problem is that Active Compliance (Like the French's position) is an outdated practice. Today, they take what they want and then kill you anyway.

Time to wake up. What these people want is your LIFE!

Gotta wake up and fight the good fight ... otherwise, we are all dead.

France thought if they stay 'neutral' they wont get hurt.
Spain was hit, now they hide.
We speak up and the world thinks we are bullies.

Its gonna get worse before it gets better. BUT HEY!!! DONT WORRY WORLD!!!

John Kerry will save you.

So if a bomb goes off at our French embassy (as in, on our soil), we shouldn't be concerned about it and we shouldn't consider ourselves attacked?

Interesting. Hard to comment on such sketchy details, however. Maybe by morning we will know more.

Slow down, tiger. I don't care if you make fun of the French or skull-fuck Islamo-fascists, but lay off the queers... Arfcom has its share of them, and they have feelings too (and weaponry)

SORRY, bad use of words I don't mean to demean gays ( your life, your right, your business) by comparing them to frogs or lumping them in the same group. I had A low opinion of the frogs before it was popular. Again sorry

... and it probably wasn't aimed at Indonesia, either.

What are the odds that some schmuck French-Algerian jihadi bombed his own by mistake?
