PALU, Saco-Indonesia.com — Pasca-ledakan bom bunuh diri di Markas Kepolisian Resor Poso, sejumlah pos polisi dan markas polres diminta untuk siaga serta meningkatkan kewaspadaan. Pernyataan ini disampaikan Kepala Bidang Hubungan Masyarakat Kepolisian Daerah Sulawesi Tengah Ajun Komisaris Besar Soemarno di Polda Sulteng, Senin (3/6/2013).

Menurut dia, sampai saat ini polisi masih melakukan olah tempat kejadian yang dipimpin langsung oleh Kapolda Sulteng Brigadir Jenderal (Pol) Aridono, sambil menunggu tim Laboratorium Forensik dan Tim Disaster Victim Identification Polri yang direncanakan akan tiba di Poso hari ini.

"Ini dilakukan untuk dapat mengidentifikasi pelaku bom bunuh diri tersebut karena di TKP (tempat kejadian) tidak ditemukan identitas seperti KTP atau SIM milik pelaku peledakan," kata Soemarno.

Seperti diberitakan sebelumnya, aksi bom bunuh diri terjadi di Kantor Polres Poso di Jalan Pulau Sumatera, Poso Kota, Kabupaten Poso, Sulawesi Tengah, Senin pagi tadi. Ledakan tersebut menewaskan pelaku yang hingga saat ini belum diketahui identitasnya dan melukai satu warga sipil yang tengah mengerjakan bangunan masjid di halaman Polres Poso.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
