At least 11 dead, 41 injured in Indonesia church attacks

Jakarta /At least 11 people, including a suicide bomber, were killed, and 41 were injured on Sunday in bomb attacks on three churches in the Indonesian city of Surabaya, the police said.

East Java police spokesperson Frans Barung Mangera told EFE that two police officers were among the injured after a series of explosions took place in the morning during Sunday service.

The first explosion took place in Surabaya’s St Mary’s Catholic church, killing four people, including the suicide bomber.

Almost immediately afterwards, there were explosions in a protestant church on the Diponegoro street, where two people were killed, and another one at a pentecostal church on Arjuno street, where another two people died.

Another person died later in a hospital in Surabaya, the second biggest city of the country, situated on the Java island.

The police are yet to release details of the other two victims.

The bomb disposal squad of the national police had diffused another bomb outside the Diponegoro church.

Indonesia, where Muslims constitute 88 percent of the population of 260 million, is on high-alert in the weeks leading up to the holy month of Ramadan, which begins in two days, as Islamist terrorists have in the past carried out attacks during this period.

The country has witnessed a number of terrorist attacks, including one on the island of Bali, a major tourist hotspot, where 202 people were killed in an attack in 2002. (May 13, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
