Australians have paused today, to mourn those killed in the Bali bombings attacks.

Ceremonies have been held throughout Australia and in Bali to commemorate the event which shocked the world nine years ago.

The devastating explosions in the town of Kuta killed 202 innocent holiday-makers.

Eighty-eight of them were Australians.

It’s been called the worst act of terror in Indonesian history.

Today, hundreds of people gathered at Coogee Beach to mourn the loss of 20 locals including six of their star Dolphins players.

The Australian Consulate also held a wreath laying ceremony in Bali.
