    The situation on the popular tourist island of Bali is under control, Russia's honorary consul said commenting on reports of a terrorist threat.

    "There are no serious indications of a threat. This warning was based on unchecked and unconfirmed information, but Bali's police and special services are on full alert," Nuku Kamka said.

    The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta on Thursday issued a warning that the island could be attacked on New Year. It said the warning was received from Governor Mangku Pastika, however the governor has denied issuing any warnings.

    Nine people died and 52 were wounded in Jakarta in July when two explosions hit the Indonesian capital.

    In October 2005, suicide bombers made two attacks on Bali killing 20 people.
