Local media in Indonesia report that around noon (local time) on Thursday (05/07) three bomb explosions were heard stemming from a rented house in Pasuruan (East Java). A six-year old child was reportedly injured in this incident. Police is reportedly in search of a man - with the initial A. - who fled the scene. It is not confirmed by authorities but considering recent terrorist incidents in Surabaya and Sidoarjo (East Java), the Pasuruan explosions could be related to terrorism.

On Sunday morning (13/05) terrorists struck three churches in Surabaya (East Java) when Sunday morning services were about to start or were ongoing. By 14:00 pm local time on Monday police confirmed 15 deaths (including the six terrorists) and 45 injured people (who are being treated in local hospitals). However, over the past hours these numbers have been rising and therefore there is a chance they will rise further in the next couple of hours as developments proceed and more information becomes available.
Indonesia's special counter-terrorism force Densus 88 killed three alleged terrorists in a shooting just outside the Indonesian capital city of Jakarta on Wednesday morning (21/12). Meanwhile, Densus 88 arrested another man and discovered a cache of bombs, presumably intended to be used for suicide bombings during Christmas celebrations. The shooting - and discovery of the bombs - took place at two rented houses at a housing complex in South Tangerang (Banten Province) some 25 kilometers outside Jakarta.
Several people, five terrorists and two civilians, have been killed in a series of multiple explosions and gunfire in the center of Indonesia's capital city of Jakarta. Around 10:50 am local Jakarta time the first explosion occurred near the Sarinah department store on Jalan M.H. Thamrin in Central Jakarta. Previously Indonesian authorities had already received a threat from Islamic State that the country would be in the spotlight of this terrorist organization. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Sutiyoso, Director of Indonesia's State Intelligence Agency (BIN), said authorities will closely monitor those Indonesians that return home after having joined the militant Islamic State in Syria. It is estimated that more than 100 Indonesians have traveled back to the Archipelago from Syria after having fought alongside the militant organization. Meanwhile, Indonesian policy is investigating a video that has been circulating on social media. This video displays a local terrorist group threatening to attack Indonesia's State Palace and Jakarta Policy headquarters.
