Suspected IS attacks on the Indonesian city Jakarta


Several explosions have just been heard as gunfire broke out in the center of the Indonesian capital, Jakarta. Police suspect a suicide bomber is responsible for at least one blast.


Six bombs have been reported, with a Reuters witness claiming to have seen at least three people dead and a gunfight occur.

Starbucks café has been victim to one of the blasts, with security forces seen entering the building after.

Media said six bombs went off and a Reuters witness saw three dead people and a gunfight going on. One blast went off in a Starbucks cafe and security forces were later seen entering the building. “The Starbucks cafe windows are blown out. I see three dead people on the road. There has been a lull in the shooting but someone is on the roof of the building and police are aiming their guns at him,” said a Reuters photographer.

Twitter accounts are accounting the explosions, some reported to have occurred in the front of a shopping center, The Sarinah Mall, on a main city street.


Recent reports have warned Indonesia of suspected Islamist militant attacks. Those responsible have yet to be confirmed. However, counter-terrorism police have launched a crackdown on those suspected to be linked to Islamic State.
