Family carried out Indonesia police bombing

"In Syria, [terror network] the Islamic State has used children several times in their attacks", Tito told reporters in the press conference.

"The police arrested one in Pandaan, Pasuruan District; two in Malang; and another one in Surabaya", he added.

Co-ordinated suicide bombings at three churches were carried out Sunday by a family of six that included girls aged eight and 12.

"This is terrifying", said Taufik Andrie, executive director of an institute that runs programs to help paroled militants reject extremism and rejoin society.

All told, 26 people died in the two days of attacks including a total of 13 militants and their children.

Television footage showed one church where the yard in front appeared engulfed in fire, with thick, black smoke billowing up. At least one fatality was confirmed, but initial reports said at least seven people were dead, including four of the attackers, and that 10 people were injured, including four policemen. The motorcycles, which moved closely together, pulled up alongside a auto and four officers manning opposite sides of the checkpoint. Jemaah Islamiyah, the al-Qaida affiliated network responsible for the Bali attacks, was obliterated by a sustained crackdown on militants by Indonesia's counterterrorism police with US and Australian support.

The tragic reason for boy's guard of honour on way to school
When he arrived at his school in Sullivan he was greeted by 70 Terre Haute police officers and Vigo County sheriff's deputies. He was tragically killed on May 4 in a shootout at an apartment complex where an armed murder suspect was barricaded inside.

The eight-year-old daughter who survived did not have explosives strapped to her, but was thrown three metres into the air by the blast and was receiving intensive care in hospital, police said.

"The children probably don't know what's going on or don't understand", he said.

IS also claimed responsibility for an attack on a high-security prison near Jakarta that killed five security forces personnel earlier this month, among other attacks. In the evening, a suicide bomb also exploded at flats in Wonocolo, Sidoarjo, and the next day it occurred at Surabaya Police HQ.

Karnavian said the father drove a bomb-laden vehicle into the city's Pentecostal church.

Futrianto was reported to have dropped off his wife, Puji Kuswati, and their two daughters, ages 9 and 12, at Diponegoro Indonesian Christian Church in Surabaya, East Java.
