Flyers surface in Batam warning of bomb attacks targeting Singaporeans

This is indeed scary news. Just went to Batam not long ago.

On a side note, the flyers seem to be counter-intuitive, why on earth would the terrorists send a warning letter stating where they are going to bomb? More likely a scare tactic or a hoax, but better be safe than sorry.
