Fourteen people sustained injuries in the suicide attack outside a Church in eastern Indonesia, after a blast occurred outside a Catholic church in the city of Makassar located in the province of Southern Sulawesi.
The explosion broke out near the gate of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral in Makassar, the capital of the South Sulawesi province, during Sunday mass at 10:28 a.m. local time (02:28 GMT).
Cars parked nearby were damaged, Reuters reported, citing local news footage. Some body parts were reportedly found at the site, and several injured people were transported to hospital.
The cause of the explosion was not immediately clear. However, local media reported, citing a witness, that several people had shouted that there was a “bomb” before the explosion.
In connection with the ISIS terrorist attack at the Christian church in Makassar, we are asking Russian citizens in Sulawesi (and everyone else too) to remain calm, not to visit crowded places, to follow police guidelines.
According to preliminary data, so far, there is only the terrorist listed among the dead.
