Daesh Claims Responsibility for Indonesia’s Surabaya Suicide Attack
Local Editor

Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing of a police headquarters in Indonesia's second city Surabaya on Monday, according to the SITE monitoring group.

At least 10 people including police officers were injured in the attack, which the police said, was carried out by a family of five including an eight-year-old-child who survived.

In further details, a family of five, including a child, carried out the suicide bombing which wounded 10 people, police said, one day after a deadly wave of attacks on churches in the same city staged by another family also claimed by Daesh.

"A martyrdom-seeking operation with an explosive-laden motorcycle hit the gate of an Indonesian police headquarters in the city of Surabaya in East Java province in Indonesia," Daesh's official Amaq news agency claimed, according to SITE. 

Earlier on Sunday, a family killed 13 people in suicide attacks on three churches in Surabaya.

The Monday's blast occurred at 8:50 am, East Java police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera told a briefing. 

Citing CCTV footage from the scene, Mangera said a man and a woman on the bike stopped at the security checkpoint.

Mangera said civilians and police were victims of the attack but didn't immediately announce a death or injury toll.
