  • H9 indonesia church bombing

Police said they uncovered the link between the three families through interviews with the surviving children of the Sidoarjo family.

"The perpetrators allegedly committed SARA (an acronym for hate speech about race, religion or ethnicity) through Facebook and was then secured by Aceh police officers on Monday, May 14, at around 11:45 pm", Aceh Police spokesperson Misbahul Munauwar told Detik today.

Futrianto was reported to have dropped off his wife, Puji Kuswati, and their two daughters, ages 9 and 12, at Diponegoro Indonesian Christian Church in Surabaya, East Java.

The church attacks occurred within minutes of each other, according to Surabaya police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera.

Karnavian said the father of the family that carried out the church bombings was head of the Surabaya cell of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, an Indonesian militant network affiliated with IS that has been implicated in attacks in Indonesia in the past year.

Roni Faisal, a police officer, is also being praised for his heroic act after saving a wounded girl from the family who detonated a suicide bomb in front of the Surabaya Police headquarters.

IS claimed responsibility for the church bombings in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency.

The family was one among hundreds in Indonesia, who had returned from Syria and has observed the IS occupation there.

Police ordered the temporary closure of all churches in Surabaya on Sunday, and a large food festival in the city was cancelled.

"For the kids, I think this is craziness", said Taufik Andrie, who runs an Indonesian institute that helps rehabilitate former militants ready to rejoin society.

ISIS, from which the recent attackers reportedly took their cues, has always understood the power of using provocative violence, Barton said.

At least 26 people were killed and dozens more injured in the multiple suicide bombings, the deadliest terrorist strike in Indonesia in more than a decade. The church bombings were swiftly followed by other attacks, including one Monday that targeted a police station and was carried out in the company of the attackers' 7-year-old daughter.

"What happened is their parents indoctrinated the children", said Arifin, "So when the mother asked them to wear the waist bombs they did it".

A terror suspect was killed in a gunfire exchange with police anti-terror squad in Indonesian city Surabaya's Tandes district on Tuesday afternoon.

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