Anger over Bali bomb site, 10 years on

Cars park side by side in a vacant lot in the center of Kuta, Bali, near a sign that implores passersby not to urinate there.

It was here 10 years ago that a bomb tore through the Sari Club, for a split second silencing the crowd of revelers as they chatted, drank and danced on a typical Saturday night out.

Phil Britten was there with his team mates from the Kingsley Cats, Australian rules football players on an end of season trip from Perth, on the country's west coast.

In his book "Undefeated," Britten, who received burns to 60% of his body, describes the stench and burning in his throat from the bomb, before his hearing kicked in and the screams rang out.
