Two Aussies hurt in Jakarta bombing

 July 17, 2009 4:24PM

PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd has confirmed that two Australians are among the injured following the twin bombings of two five star hotels in Jakarta this morning.

Mr Rudd was speaking after an emergency session with Cabinet's National Security Committee in which his intelligence chiefs warned of more possible attacks.

He warned Australians to suspend travel to Indonesia including Bali.

Mr Rudd described being "sick in the stomach'' when told this morning by his foreign affairs advisor about the Jakarta bombings, 45 minutes after they occurred.

"We are dealing with very, very ugly people.

"It is an assault on all of us.

"It is an act of murder.
