Explosion hits police HQ in Indonesia’s 2nd-largest city

An explosion has hit a police station in Surabaya, Indonesia, officials say. It comes a day after coordinated suicide blasts at three churches there were perpetrated by members of one family.

A vehicle exploded at the police office on Monday morning, according to the police. The exact number and severity of the casualties is unclear so far, East Java police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said at a briefing, but earlier reports citing unnamed officials indicated there had been at least one fatality.

"There has been an explosion, we dont know exactly what happened," Mangera said.

On Sunday morning, three churches in Surabaya were hit by suicide bombers within 10 minutes of each other, killing at least 13 people and wounding around 40. Police said the attacks were all perpetrated by members of the same family, who used children as the suicide bombers.
