14 May 2018

The death toll from Indonesia's suicide explosions at three churches yesterday has risen to 13, according to authorities. More than 40 others were also wounded in the blast. The perpetrators launched the suicide attacks during congregations Sunday morning at the three churches.

The assailants are believed to be members of the same family including two teen sons, two young daughters and their mother. The police has confirmed that Sunday's church bombings were linked to the deadly prison riot at a maximum-security detention facility in West Java last week.
