  • Three families behind ISIS-inspired bombings in Indonesia's Surabaya

"A fire exchange has occurred, claiming one life aged between 39 and 41", East Java Police Headquarters Spokesperson Frans Barung Mangera said. "We stand ready to step up cooperation with the Indonesian side and other members of the worldwide community to jointly counter terrorist threats and challenges and uphold peace and tranquility of the region and the world", he said.

Another Facebook user then commented on her post with news about the bomb blast at the Santa Maria Church in Surabaya.

The content of the films included footage from Syria and Iraq, as well as Isis attacks in France, and was meant to encourage those in the group to commit terrorist attacks, he said.

Democratic Party deputy secretary-general Rachland Nashidik said that while it was important to revise the Terrorism Law, the President should "pay attention to organizational reform and replace officials who have failed in carrying out their duties to protect the freedom and security of citizens".

Three suicide blasts were committed by one family - a husband, wife and four children - against three churches in the town.

But observers say that there is certainly a whiff of ISIS in the strikes on the churches and the local police station by two families, as well as the plot that was botched up by a third family in nearby Sidoarjo after their bombs exploded prematurely.


At least 13 people died while 41 suffered injuries in the bombing that Sunday morning.

The use of children in the attacks has been particularly horrifying to people.

The attacks are thought to have been perpetrated in support of Jamaah Ansharut Daulah, an Indonesian jihadi group that supports ISIS. The incidents left 18 people killed including the family of six.

It claimed responsibility for 11 attacks between 2000 and 2010, including the deadly 2002 Bali bombings that left more than 200 people dead and hundreds injured, many of them tourists.

The series of terror attacks in Surabaya followed a bloody riot only three days earlier caused by around 150 terrorist suspects breaking their cells and killing five police officers in Depok. An eight-year-old girl is the only surviving family member. Meanwhile, police were also able to recover a few more homemade bombs around the church's vicinity, which the bomb squad properly detonated and disposed of. Based on their remains, Karnavian said the mother and daughters were all wearing explosives around their waists.
