Police HQ in Indonesia city attacked after church bombings

A FAMILY took along their eight-year-old daughter to a suicide bomb attack on the police headquarters in Indonesia's second-largest city. Six civilians and four officers were wounded.

Gen Karnavian said police recovered unexploded pipe bombs in another incident in Sidoarjo, south of Surabaya, in an apartment where an explosion killed three members of a family alleged to have been making bombs. At least 10 people were reportedly injured. "One of them was a little kid", national police chief Tito Karnavian said.

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.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says the use of children in both attacks is barbaric.

The Australian government is warning Austraians to exercise a high level of caution if travelling to Indonesia following a spate of terrorist attacks.

Speaking after Sunday's Regina Coeli, Pope Francis said: "I am particularly close to the dear people of Indonesia, especially to the Christian communities of the city of Surabaya, which have been severely hit by the serious attack on places of worship". Police also reported that Sunday evening, a mother and her teenage daughter were killed in a Surabaya suburb when a bomb being handled by the family's father prematurely went off, CNN reported. "We believe she was thrown three metres or so up into the air by the impact of the explosion and then fell to the ground", said East Java police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera, adding she had been rushed to hospital.

She was probably only half-joking. "As at so many times in her life, she has been an extraordinary driving force for change". She was appointed dame commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2012, and entered the House of Lords in 2015.

Earlier, police said his family was among 500 Daesh sympathizers who had returned from Syria, but the police chief said that was incorrect.

There were at least two other attempts to bomb more churches, but these explosives failed to detonate according to the Jakarta Post.

CCTV footage shows a vehicle and two motorcycles approaching a security checkpoint at the police complex followed by an explosion from one of the motorbikes with at least two people aboard it.

Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, has struggled in recent months with a rise in Islamist militancy, which has come as ISIS has been squeezed out of its heartland in Syria and Iraq.

A few days ago, the Indonesian police managed to control a prison riot in Depok, a West Javan city, involving hundreds of detainees, many of whom belong to JAD.
