Surabaya attacks: Family of 5 bomb Indonesia police Hqs

Bali, Jakarta on highest alert after Surabaya bomb attacks

The police headquarters in the city of Surabaya has been the target of the latest suicide bomb attack, injuring police officers and civilians. The attack killed the four perpetrators. A girl aged 8 survived this attack in which four police officers and six civilians were injured.

One the same day, the family's two teenage sons, 16 and 18, drove their motorcycles to the Santa Maria Catholic Church, where they carried out similar attacks. The flurry of attacks in the world's most populous Muslim nation have been linked to the return of some of the 1,100 fighters who joined Daesh in Syria. Experts have warned for several years that when those fighters return, they could pose a significant threat.

All members of the family died in the attacks, which ISIS claimed responsibility for via its Amaq News Agency in what it called "a martyrdom operation".

Earlier, police said his family was among 500 ISIS sympathisers who had returned from Syria, but the police chief said that was incorrect.

He confirmed TV reports that three people, including a child, were inside the fifth-floor flat at the time of the blast. Children have no choice.

President Joko Widodo strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in East Java, saying they were "beyond humanity measures".

Police said they arrived after the explosion and shot dead the injured man, Anton Febrianto, as he held a bomb detonator in his hand. The motorcycles, which moved closely together, pulled up alongside a vehicle and four officers manning opposite sides of the checkpoint.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - A wave of deadly bombings Sunday and Monday and evidence of more planned have shaken Indonesia just before the holy month of Ramadan, with entire families - including children - carrying out suicide attacks against Christian worshipers and the police. All six members of the family were killed.

The country's top security minister Wiranto, who goes by one name, said the revised law would allow security authorities to take "pre-emptive" action to stop attacks.

Later Sunday, in what police also described as a terror incident, a mother and her 17-year-old daughter were killed in the Surabaya suburb of Sidoarjo when a bomb handled by the family's father detonated prematurely.

The attacks occurred within minutes of each other, according to Surabaya police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera. The father of the church suicide bombers was a local leader in extremist network Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) which supports IS, and the second family was also linked to JAD.
