Islamic State Jihadis Arrested in Indonesian Bomb Plot


posted by Christopher W. Holton

Indonesian police have arrested three suspected “Islamic State-linked” Jihadists for plotting bomb attacks on Indonesia’s presidential palace.

Two men and a woman were arrested in a house in West Bekasi, West Java.

In searching the house, the police uncovered three bombs.

Indonesian police believe all three are members of the Jamaah Anshar Khilafah Daulah Nusantara (JAKDN) network led by Bahrun Naim, an Indonesian fighting with the Islamic State in Syria who authorities believe masterminded a fatal attack in Jakarta in January.
