Suicide bomber attacks Indonesia church

Solo, Indonesia — At least one person was killed Sunday when a suicide bomber attacked an Indonesian church, officials said, the latest sectarian incident to hit the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation.

“I can confirm that there was a suicide bomb attack in Church Bethel Injil at 10:55,” Central Java provincial police spokesman Djihartono told AFP.

The church is in Solo, the home town of militant Islamist spiritual leader Abu Bakar Bashir who was jailed in June for 15 years for funding a terrorist group that was planning attacks against Westerners and political leaders.
