Two homemade nail bombs exploded in separate locations in a central Indonesian town that has been plagued by religious violence in recent years, police said Sunday. No one was wounded in the blasts that took place within 15 minutes of each other Saturday night in Poso, a district town in Central Sulawesi province, said local police chief Lt. -Col. Adeni Muhan. Poso, about 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) northeast of the capital, Jakarta, was the center of fierce battles between Muslims and Christians that killed about 1,000 people in 2001 and 2002. Saturday's first blast happened in an empty lot, while the second, about two kilometers (1.2 miles) away, took place in front of a home belonging to a Christian, Muhan said.
