Indonesia - A 150-kg Bomb Targets Church
A massive 150-kilogram bomb found buried beneath a gas pipeline in Serpong, Tangerang, on Thursday morning was targeting the nearby Catholic Church in a Good Friday attack. 19 arrested suspects on Thursday led police to the gas pipeline near a church in Serpong, where they found the massive bomb just about a hundred meters from the church.
Islamic militants had been plotting the attack for Good Friday celebrations.
Those arrested on Thursday included six accused in a series of mail bombs sent last month. Those arrested had links to “old terror network Jemaah Islamiyah [JI].
