MNA International Desk: Two suspected suicide bombers killed three Indonesian police officers and injured 10 people on Wednesday night in twin blasts near a bus station in Jakarta, police said.
The blasts went off five minutes apart at Jakarta’s Kampung Melayu terminal, police said.
Police did not immediately reveal a motive but likened the attack to the events in Manchester and said it was linked to global terror.
Authorities in the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country have been increasingly worried about resurgence in radicalism, driven in part by a new generation of militants inspired by Islamic State.
There has been a series of low-level attacks linked to Islamic State since January 2016, when four militants mounted a gun and bomb assault in the heart of Jakarta.
Eight people were killed in that attack, including the militants.
