The Jakarta Post

12/18/06 Indoneisa (Asia Media) — Staff at Radio Pelita Kasih, which airs religious songs and Christian teachings, received a bomb threat early Saturday morning via a text message from an unknown number.

The police and bomb squad swept the station’s building, located inside the Suara Pembaruan office in Jl. Dewi Sartika, East Jakarta.

“We found nothing. No explosive substances or suspicious devices. We declare the place clear,” Kramat Jati Police chief Comr. Didik Kusdianto was quoted as saying by Detik.

The text message was received at about 2 a.m.

“We didn’t wait long to go back on-air,” radio announcer Rose said.
