"We can not confirm yet if this was a terror-related incident", said Yogyakarta police spokesman Yuliyanto, who goes by one name like many Indonesians.

Police said they acted quickly and identified the detained man as a 35-year-old surnamed Zhu from Henan province.

A man wielding a sword attacked several churchgoers on Sunday (Feb 11) in the city of Yogyakarta, injuring a German priest and three others, including a police officer, as reported by Channel News Asia.

Around 100 people were attending the service in the town of Sleman in Yogyakarta province on Java island when a man barged in wielding a one-metre-long sword and began attacking terror-stricken people, seemingly indiscriminately.

The policeman who wounded the attacker with two shots to the legs was injured by the man with the Samurai-like sword as the officer intervened to stop the attack, officials said.

"Everybody started panicking and screaming. I was scrambling to save my wife and children", Cahyo said.

Congregation member Andhi Cahyo was quoted as saying that soon after the service started, a fellow member whose head was bleeding ran into the church chased by the assailant.

People in the church ran out through another door and the assailant pursued them while destroying church property.

Police arrived and fired a warning shot into the air to subdue the perpetrator, who refused to surrender.

Extremists have carried out a series of attacks against Christians and other minorities in the mainly Muslim country.

Police said the attacker charged at the officer, who shot and injured him.

All the injured people have been rushed into a nearby hospital for medical treatments, police said. Indonesia is also home to significant numbers of Christians, Hindus and Buddhists.
