  • Five dead in attack on Indonesian police headquarters

The men crashed their vehicle into a number of police officers, who were on guard at the entrance of the Police headquarters, reported Indonesian news agency Antara.

Indonesia is on high alert after a wave of recent bombings in the country's second-largest city, Surabaya.

The men had driven their auto into the police yard before getting out to stage the attack, Setyo Wasisto, national police spokesman, told a briefing.

Mr Wasisto said a journalist who had been at the police station was also hurt after being hit by the auto.

Two officers were wounded while another was killed after one of the perpetrators tried to escape and crashed into the officer, he said.

Authorities shot dead three people after the attempted attack on Pekanbaru police station, while one police officer was killed.

Impacted brands include Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms and Glenview. In addition to shipping the eggs to grocery stores, Rose Acre Farms sent them to restaurants.

Media said one attacker may have had a bomb strapped to his body but police did not immediately confirm the reports.

Television images showed what was reportedly the bodies of four suspects lying on the ground.

The perpetrators have not been identified or a motive determined.

Indonesia - which is set to host the Asian Games in just three months and an IMF-World Bank meeting in Bali in October - has long struggled with extremist militancy, including the 2002 Bali bombings that killed over 200 people - mostly foreign tourists - in the country's worst-ever terror attack.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this article stated that at least three men had attacked the Riau Police headquarters.

Police suspected Sunday's attacks on the churches were carried out by a cell of the ISIL-inspired group Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD).
