Three killed in another Indonesia bomb explosion

Three killed in another Indonesia bomb explosion

The bombings were carried out by three different families, which involved children as young as nine years old. I think the police and other security officers are extremely alert in response to what has happened.

The coordinated bombings on Sunday, followed on Monday by a suicide attack by another family on police headquarters in Surabaya, have horrified Indonesians who typically see their Muslim-majority country as diverse and tolerant.

The families behind a wave of suicide bombings in the Indonesian city of Surabaya were all members of the same religious study group and radicalised their children through homeschooling, investigators in East Java have said.

According to police, the accused Oepriarto was friends with the other family who carried police headquarters bombing out Monday's and a third family who died after homemade bombs exploded in their apartment on Sunday night.

The content of the films included footage from Syria and Iraq, as well as Isis attacks in France, and was meant to encourage those in the group to commit terrorist attacks, he said.

Daesh claimed responsibility for all the attacks in statements carried by its Amaq news agency.

THE Department of Foreign Affairs says it "continues to receive information" terrorists are planning fresh attacks in Indonesia and has warned Australians to take particular care in the country over the next few weeks.

All told, 26 people died in the two days of attacks including a total of 13 militants and their children.

And if the initial analysis by the police that the Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) is behind the recent attacks is accurate, then the local terrorist network has truly raised its game. At least one fatality was confirmed, but initial reports said at least seven people were dead, including four of the attackers, and that 10 people were injured, including four policemen.

Terrorist in Indonesia made police their main target after a number of their leaders and fellow terrorist fighters were arrested or killed by special anti terrorist police squad.

Yesterday, a counter-terrorism source told The Straits Times that a key reason why male militants are willing to sacrifice their wives and children in their "martyrdom" was because they did not want their surviving spouse and children being placed in deradilcalisation programmes after their death. Their mother Puji Kuswati attacked worshippers at another church with her daughters aged 9 and 12.

Oepriarto blew himself up at Surabaya Center Pentecostal Church, while his two sons killed themselves at Santa Maria Roman Catholic church.
