Assailants Dead after Attacking Police Headquarters in Indonesia

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

Attack comes after multiple bombings in Surabaya in the past week.

The spokesman said that a journalist who had been at the police station was also hurt after being hit by the vehicle.

"Two police officers were wounded in the arms and head by the sharp weapons", Sunarto told Detik.

Television images showed what was reportedly the bodies of four suspects lying on the ground.

A police spokesman in Riau said they had not identified the perpetrators yet or determined their motive.

Jeffress responded in a tweet: "Historic Christianity has taught for 2,000 years that salvation is through faith in Christ alone". Shah told reporters that he hadn't heard Jeffress' remarks, but added, "Those aren't remarks the president believes".


The attacks have put Indonesia on edge as the world's biggest Muslim majority country starts the holy fasting month of Ramadan from Thursday.

SUSPECTED militants carrying swords and a bomb have attacked a police station on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, as Islamists continue to wage war against the south-east Asian nation.

It was not clear if today's incident was linked to the earlier attacks in Surabaya, Indonesia's second biggest city, which have been claimed by the Islamic State group.

Police suspect they were carried out by a cell of the Islamic State-inspired group Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), an umbrella organisation on a U.S. State Department terrorist list that is reckoned to have drawn hundreds of Indonesian sympathisers of Islamic State.

The church bombing family were in the same religious study group as the Surabaya police station bombers and a third family believed to be linked to the wave of attacks, authorities said.

Indonesia is still reeling from the shock of a series of suicide bombings in recent days.
