Seven people, including five suspected IS-linked militants were killed in a deadly "Paris-style" attack in Jakarta on Thursday (Jan 14), stirring Southeast Asian governments' worst fears - that citizens returning from fighting alongside IS in the Middle East, could launch attacks at home.
Multiple explosions and gunshots rang out just after 10.30am local time in the Indonesian capital on Thursday (Jan 14) along the busy Jalan Thamrin thoroughfare. After a five-hour operation involving armed security forces and reports of explosions and gunfire, Indonesian authorities declared that the attack was over and they had taken control of the situation.
The attacks left five attackers and two civilians, including a Westerner, dead and 19 others wounded.
