Terrorist attacks in Indonesia made wife with their five children

Bombings in Indonesian churches has killed two

National police chief Tito Karnavian said that the father exploded a vehicle bomb, two sons aged 18 and 16 used a motorcycle for their attack, and the mother was with daughters aged 12 and 9 for her attack. Four people were injured.

The Jemaah Ansharuut Daulah (JAD) network, a group of Indonesian radicals, which has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group, is thought to be behind the attack. The Islamic State (ISIS, according to its acronym in English) has claimed authorship of attack. It didn't mention anything about families or children taking part and said there were only three attackers. The bombings were the worst since a series of attacks on churches on Christmas Eve in 2000 killed 15 people and wounded almost 100. A new threat has emerged in recent years, inspired by IS attacks overseas.

Another 500 Indonesians are believed to have returned home since the routing of IS forces in Syria.

"The husband drove the auto, an Avanza, that contained explosives and rammed it into the gate in front of that church", Barung Mangera told reporters at the regional police headquarters in Surabaya.

As the Christian minority in Indonesia celebrated Sunday services a week before Pentecost, Islamic terrorists attacked three churches with bombs, killing at least 13 and wounding scores in the worst such onslaught in 18 years. Based on their remains, Karnavian said the mother and daughters were all wearing explosives around their waists.

Smoke billows from burnt motorcycles following the suicide attack at the Pentacostal church in Surabaya, Indonesia, on Sunday. "Suddenly she hugged a civilian then (the bomb) exploded", said the witness, a security guard who identified himself as Antonius.

Shattered glass and chunks of concrete littered the entrance of the Santa Maria Church, which was sealed off by heavily armed police.

A street merchant outside the church said she was thrown several meters (yards) by the blast. Meanwhile, two boys, whose initials are D and K, set out on their own riding a motorbike to Santa Maria's church. "One was wearing black trousers and one with a backpack", said Samsia, who uses a single name. "Soon after that the explosion happened".

Indonesian President Joko Widodo visited the scenes of the attacks and described them as "cowardly actions" that were "very barbaric and beyond the limit of humanity".


The US Embassy in Jakarta condemned the attacks.

"The main target is still security authorities, but we can say that there are alternative [targets] if the main targets are blocked", he told Reuters.

Indonesia boasts the largest Muslim population of any country in the world.

The bomb allegedly went off prematurely at 9 p.m., killing at least one of the tenants of the Wonocolo low-priced apartments behind the Taman Police station in Sidoarjo.

He confirmed TV reports that three people, including a child, were inside the fifth-floor flat at the time of the blast.

One suicide bomber appeared to have been disguised as a churchgoer.

National police spokesman Setyo Wasisto announced that police fatally shot four suspected militants and arrested two others early Sunday in West Java towns.

Jakarta has raised the alert status to the "highest alert status until further notice", Jakarta Police chief Insp.

A witness interviewed by CNN in Indonesia has stated that, shortly before explosion, he saw a person driving a motorcycle and carrying a cardboard box.
