JAKARTA (AFP) – Two Australians were briefly detained by Indonesian police yesterday for climbing to the summit of Mt Agung on Bali, hours before authorities shrunk an exclusion zone. Ricky Tonacia, 34, and Jack Dennard, 26, were questioned by police. “They said the hotel where they were staying told them the volcano is safe,” Capt Wayan Mustika from the Karangasem military post said. “We released them at 11.25am because there was no criminal offence.” The 10km danger zone was reduced to 6km.
