More explosions in Surabaya after church attacks

A Surabaya police office is the latest target in a series of bombings in Surabaya and neighbouring Sidoarjo

The mother, with her two daughters, attacked the Christian Church of Diponegoro, he said.

The group's spiritual leader is Aman Abdurrahman, a jailed Indonesian radical who authorised the Jakarta attack and is considered the de facto leader of all IS supporters in Indonesia.

Police in Indonesia say the latest bombings in Surabaya may have been motivated by last week's clashes at a high-security detention center where members of a local militant organization are being held. With her two daughters present, Kuswati hugged a parishioner before detonating her bomb, according to the Associated Press which cited a security guard.

Karnavian said the father drove a bomb-laden vehicle into the city's Pentecostal church.

The sons aged 16 and 18 rode a motorcycle onto the grounds of the Santa Maria Church and detonated their explosives there, he said. Three suicide blasts were committed by one family - a husband, wife and four children - against three churches in the town.

Concerns about sectarian intolerance have been on the rise, with churches targeted in the past. CNN reported that Monday's attack was carried out by two attackers and an 8-year-old girl on a motorcycle; the young girl was seen stumbling among the wreckage following the detonation of the explosives and was reported to have survived, according to CNN.

"Because their leaders are detained, their groups could be retaliating", said Karnavian. Officers reportedly found the father of the family in the house holding a detonator and shot him.

The family blew themselves up at a checkpoint outside the Surabaya police headquarters on Monday morning, injuring at least 10 people.

The spate of bombings has rocked Indonesia, with the Islamic State group claiming the church attacks and raising fears about its influence in Southeast Asia as its dreams of a Middle Eastern caliphate fade. All members of the family died in the attacks, which ISIS claimed responsibility for via its Amaq News Agency in what it called "a martyrdom operation".

Sitting in his home, Oesodo held a family photo of Oepriarto and his three other children and spoke about his love for his family.

"If he had not stopped the bombers, there would have been more victims (inside the church)", he said. After some major successes tackling terrorism since 2001, there has been a resurgence in recent years, including in January 2016 when four suicide bombers and gunmen attacked a shopping area in the capital, Jakarta.

Indonesia, which is set to host the Asian Games in just three months, has long struggled with Islamic militancy, including the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people - including Taiwanese Eve Kuo (郭惠敏) - in the nation's worst-ever terror attack.
