'Mother of Satan' explosives used in Surabaya church bombings

'Mother of Satan' explosives used in Surabaya church bombings

Islamic extremists in Indonesia, including a family of suicide bombers that targeted three churches, launched multiple attacks beginning Mother's Day that reportedly killed at least 25 people. "Two people were riding (on the motorcycle) and a woman was sitting at the back".

Police said they also shot dead four suspects, including the second-ranking member of the JAD cell in Surabaya, in raids on houses and offices Monday while nine others were arrested.

The government may offer more support to Indonesia, in the wake of the bombings.

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

The bombings at the three churches were Indonesia's deadliest for years, as the Muslim-majority country grappled with homegrown militancy and rising intolerance towards religious minorities, the Jakarta Post reported.

The extent of the carnage and the fact that children were enlisted in the attacks drew condemnation from the country's leader, President Joko Widodo, who called them "barbaric". A wave of suicide bombings on churches killed at least 13 and injured 40 on Sunday. "One of them was a little kid", Karnavian said.

ISIS first mounted attacks in Indonesia in 2016, claiming the lives of four civilians in explosions and shootings.

Anton died later after police officers gunned him down to prevent him from triggering another bomb.

According to Machfud, Abu Bakr taught radical terrorist ideology to the families but did not give any details regarding what, if any, role he had in planning or undertaking the attacks.

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.

However, hundreds of Indonesians have flocked in recent years to fight alongside the militant group there. "We believe she was thrown 3 metres (10 ft) or so up into the air by the impact of the explosion and then fell to the ground", said Mangera, adding she had been rushed to hospital. Through his spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, Secreatry General Antonio Guterres said that he was "appalled at reports that children were used to participate in the attacks", and offered his condolences to the families of the victims.

"According to police, on Sunday morning, "Two young boys aged 16 and 18 rode a motorcycle into a church courtyard and detonated their explosives".

He said that families could also avoid communicating using technology that could be tracked.
