Islamic State claims responsibility for Indonesia police HQ suicide bombing
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing of a police headquarters in Indonesia’s second city Surabaya Monday, according to the SITE monitoring group.
A family of five, including a child, carried out the suicide bombing which wounded 10 people, police said, a day after a deadly wave of attacks on churches in the same city staged by another family also claimed by IS.
“A martyrdom-seeking operation with an explosive-laden motorcycle hit the gate of an Indonesian police headquarters in the city of Surabaya in East Java province in Indonesia,” IS’s official Amaq news agency reported, according to SITE.
