‘Today, Thursday 14th seen multiple bomb attacks in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, this attack was carried out by Daesh(ISIS/ISIL) which are currently on a campaign to sow terror among the worlds peoples. The sowing of terror would play right into the hands of Daesh, with the alienation of the Muslim community there will be more ripe pickings for the terror group’

“We have identified all attackers … we can say that the attackers were affiliated with the ISIS group,” – Indonesian Intel

Explosions went off outside a Starbucks cafe in the capital shortly after gun fire began to ring out. Police said that the attack “imitated” the Paris attacks. All 5 attackers died in the explosions and gun fire as onlookers watched on in shock.

Two others died in the attacks, an Indonesian national and a Canadian tourist, around 20 others were injured. The attacks were relatively small in the scale of that of the Paris attacks, casualty’s were low compared, but the fear it sows is the same as that of Paris, no doubt.
