Four killed in latest Indonesia 'terror' assault

According to reports from journalists at the scene, who were covering another story right before the attack, a white Toyota Avanza smashed into the outer fence of the police headquarters.

The assault in the city of Pekanbaru on Sumatra island on Wednesday saw a group ram their minivan into a gate at the station and then attack officers with the swords, police said.

Two officers were wounded while another was killed after one of the perpetrators tried to escape and crashed into the officer, he said.

The attack comes after a wave of attacks on police in Java and the bombing of several Christian Churches.

Authorities shot dead three people after the attempted attack on Pekanbaru police station, while one police officer was killed.

While the police managed to shoot four of the attackers, the remaining five escaped, said the police chief of Riau.

One of the dead was suspected to have a bomb strapped to their body.

Television images showed what was reportedly the bodies of four suspects lying on the ground.

It was not clear if today's incident was linked to the earlier attacks in Surabaya, Indonesia's second biggest city, which have been claimed by the Islamic State group.

Police suspected Sunday's attacks on the churches were carried out by a cell of the ISIL-inspired group Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD).

The suicide bombings, involving families with young children, and an explosion at an apartment where militants were suspected to have been constructing bombs have left around 30 people dead, including 13 suspected perpetrators, police said.

Indonesia is still reeling from the shock of a series of suicide bombings in recent days.
