Suicide Bomber Takes Out Church In Indonesia

   A suicide bomber has attacked an Indonesia church affiliated with Rick Warren's Saddleback Church in Southern California. Two people were killed and 17 others injured. Warren sent out an alert over the weekend, saying "our sister church in Solo City, Indonesia, Bethel Full Gospel Church, has just been bombed."  The suicide bomber died in the attack; he blew himself up directly in front of the church. There was a large explosion and then a crowd of people from inside the church rushed into the streets. Conflicts between Christians and Muslims between 1999 and 2002 have left more than 5,000 people dead and half a million people displaced. Indonesia President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has condemned Sunday's attack on Bethel Full Gospel Church, calling it "terrorism."
