More terror: Samurai sword attack in Indonesia

More terror: Samurai sword attack in Indonesia

"They were part of the Islamic State of Indonesia (NII) network in Riau, which is part of the ISIS network in Indonesia", he said, referring to Negara Islam Indonesia, also known as Darul Islam, a group that aims to establish an Islamic state in Indonesia.

Earlier this month, six officers at a high-security jail on the outskirts of the capital of Jakarta were killed by Islamic militant inmates who took hostages until being overcome by police. One officer was killed in the assault and two others were wounded.

A police station on Indonesia's island of Sumatra has been attacked by suspected terrorists.

Four of the men involved in the attack had previously tried to help terror detainees who were rioting at a maximum-security police lock-up outside Jakarta last week, he said.

The suicide bombings, involving families with young children, and an explosion at an apartment where militants were thought to have been building bombs have left around 30 people dead, including 13 suspected perpetrators, police said.

Relatives and friends of Martha Djumani, who died in a blast at the Pentekosta Church, attend her funeral in Surabaya on Wednesday. Their mother was injured.

On Monday members of another family blew themselves up at a police station in Surabaya, wounding 10.

"They had the same teacher and they regularly met for Koran recital every week", said East Java police chief Machfud Arifin, adding that police were pursuing the teacher for questioning.

The flurry of attacks, and the tactic of using children as suicide bombers, has shocked Indonesians, who fear that IS has inspired a new wave of violent extremism in the country of more than 260 million.

The men crashed their vehicle into a number of police officers, who were on guard at the entrance of the Police headquarters, reported Indonesian news agency Antara.

The church and earlier police station attacks were likely motivated by the arrest of JAD leaders, authorities said.
