Bali executions: Island calls despite the horror

Mandy James remembers the night the bombs went off in Bali.Ms James was not physically hurt by the blasts but was close enough to hear the bombs and see the carnage six years ago.News of the Bali bombers execution was met with relief, by Ms James who believes the bombers got what they deserved."I don't know that it is justice - three lives is nothing compared to what they did."She has been to Bali a number of times since the bombings but still can't bring herself to look at Sari nightclub site.She plans to celebrate her 50th birthday on the island next year. But she fears there might be retaliation attacks."It makes me a little bit anxious, I'm glad they have been executed but we loved going to Bali and now we wonder what retaliation there will be," she said."But if you stop going they win."She said the Balinese people that she spoke to supported the decision to execute the bombers."The Balinese wanted them to be executed ... they seem to think that was the right thing," he said.But she fears that the families of the bombers will only benefit after the execution by the elevation of the bombers to martyr status.
