SHAFAQNA – The Indonesian capital of Jakarta has been rocked by multiple explosions and gunfire that have killed several people and injured dozens more in suspected suicide attacks reportedly carried out by Islamic State militants.
At about 10.45 GMT ISIL has said it was behind the deadly Jakarta terror attacks, saying it targeted foreign nationals and security forces, Reuters reported, citing an Wahhabi-allied news agency.
Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders said a Dutch citizen has been seriously injured in the assaults.
The attack showed that “terrorism can hit everybody. Whether you are shopping in the heart of Paris, in a New York office or on vacation in Jakarta,” he said.
