Attackers set off bombs, open fire in Jakarta

Postby Pal » Thu, 14 Jan 2016 11:26 pm

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.

This was an unfortunate event indeed.

I have no idea how this whole episode with ISIS and the world is going to pan out , but I am fairly sure its going to get worse before it gets better.

It would appear human beings are permanently unhappy at how others are living their lives and seek to impose their values on others.

Even if it means killing said people you are trying to control.

It absolutely will.

The only question is, will ANY country be spared before it gets sorted?
