Suspected terrorists attack Riau Police headquarters with sharp weapons, 2 cops injured

Indonesian policemen stand outside a prison where inmates clashed with police at the Mobile Brigade headquarters in Depok West Java

But the attack comes after a series of suicide bombings by Islamist militants targeting churches and a police building in Indonesia's second-biggest of city of Surabaya over the past few days.

Police remove the bodies of attackers who were shot and killed at the entrance of a police station in Pekanbaru, Indonesia, Wednesday in this photo taken by Antara Foto.

Police have been frequent targets of mostly low level attacks by local militants, including a 2017 suicide bombing at a bus station in Jakarta that killed three police officers.

Just hours after the church bombings, a further three people in another family were killed and two wounded when another bomb exploded at an apartment complex about 30km from Surabaya.

More Protests Along Palestinian Border
Both these resolutions affirm that Jerusalem would be the capital of the future Palestinian State and the State of Israel. The United Nations General Assembly rejected by a huge majority the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The families have been linked to the local chapter of Indonesian extremist network Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), which police said was behind the attacks.

Following the 2002 Bali bombings, it had been widely praised for its sustained anti-terrorism crackdown. Another man was arrested and four others were suspected to have fled the scene, it said.

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

The militants also rampantly shot at the headquarters, according to national police spokesman Senior Commissioner Muhammad Iqbal.

On Monday, a family of five, including an eight-year-old child, mounted a suicide bombing at the Surabaya police headquarters, injuring 10 people.

They followed a deadly prison riot staged by Islamist prisoners at a high-security jail near Jakarta last week.
