Terror suspect killed in fresh gunfire in Indonesia's Surabaya

The newspaper reported that 12 worshippers died in the church attacks. Attacks on churches in 2000 killed 15 people and wounded nearly 100.

The second family was also linked to JAD. The mother, with her two daughters, attacked the Christian Church of Diponegoro, he said.

Earlier, media reports said a woman with a younger child and a teenager had just entered one church and was being questioned by security when the bomb exploded.

At Surabaya Centre Pentecostal Church, Futrianto then drove his vehicle onto the church grounds and detonated explosives.

Oepriarto blew himself up at Surabaya Center Pentecostal Church, while his two sons killed themselves at Santa Maria Roman Catholic church.

They were the bombers of the church on Jalan Ngagel Madya, Surabaya.

Two other churches were targeted as well, but bombs failed to explode at St. Jacob's Church in West Surabaya and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral, according to the Post.

A security camera video of the attack on Surabaya's police headquarters showed at least one explosion after the four attackers rode two motorcycles up to a security checkpoint. Officers reportedly found the father of the family in the house holding a detonator and shot him.

At least 11 people, including a suicide bomber, were killed and 41 injured on Sunday in bomb attacks on three churches in the Indonesian city of Surabaya.

Terrorist organisations such as Islamic State, al-Quaeda, the Taliban, and this latest group - the so called Jemaah Anshorut Daulah or JAD, want to spread fear, chaos, civil unrest and uncertainty in order to weaken political, social and civil power structures and draw new recruits to their evil cause. The group also claimed responsibility for a hostage-taking ordeal last week by imprisoned Islamic militants at a detention center near Jakarta in which six officers were killed.

National police spokesman Brigadier General Muhammad Iqbal confirmed that the unit of the flats was inhabited by an alleged terrorist with family members.

"I think the family setting and the isolation from the outside world ... were flawless settings for him to indoctrinate the rest of his family", said Alexander Raymond Arifianto, an Indonesia expert at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Inspector general Machfud Arifin told CNN Indonesia that the suicide attacks were carried out using a motorbike at St Mary's church and a vehicle at another.
