Egypt condemns terror attack on Indonesian police station

H9 indonesia church bombing

The four perpetrators on two motorbikes died after driving into the building gateway and detonating explosives, according to police, who said an 8-year-old girl on one of the motorcycles was thrown from the vehicle but survived.

Indonesia's deadliest terrorist attack occurred in 2002, when bombs exploded on the tourist island of Bali, killing 202 people in one night, mostly foreigners.

The first bombing was carried out by the couple's sons, 18 and 16, in the parking lot of the Santa Maria Catholic Church; the second was by the wife, and their two daughters, 12 and 9, at the Diponegoro Indonesian Christian Church.

On that same day, police said they later detonated four bombs found in the house of the family who carried out the bombings.

The father of the family that killed the Christians on Mother's Day, Dita Futrianto, was the suspected head of the local cell of an Islamic State-inspired network called Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), the BBC reported, citing police.

"If he had not stopped the bombers, there would have been more victims (inside the church)", he said. "We are angry", said an official, but he insisted that civilians cooperate with police proceedings.

The deadly spate of suicide bombings in the Indonesian city of Surabaya has revealed an even more ugly face to the Islamic State's strategy of jihad.

The group has also claimed responsibility for the riot at the National Police's Mobile Brigade headquarters (Mako Brimob) in Depok, West Java, which led to the deaths of five members of the police's elite counter-terrorism squad, Densus 88, and a 36-hour standoff between terror inmates and security forces.

However, hundreds of Indonesians have flocked in recent years to fight alongside the militant group there.

Barton at Deakin University said the Surabaya attacks could be the "opening salvo of a new, more sophisticated campaign", and added that the timing - just before Ramadan, which begins May 15 - "bears the hallmarks of ISIS", which has used the holy month in the past to launch high profile attacks.

The statement issued Sunday offered condolences to the families of victims and said the United Nations stands by Indonesia's efforts to fight extremism and prevent terrorism.
