    Another blast reportedly occurred in Jakarta's downtown area of Sarinah as Indonesian police are continuing their operation against attackers who had thrown grenades in the capital.

    Earlier in the day, up to 15 unidentified attackers on motorcycles threw grenades in Jakarta killing at least six people.

    ​The new blast occurred in a cafe near the Starbucks that had been attacked earlier, after an anti-terror squad stormed the cafe, an AP journalist said. Policemen and medical personnel were reportedly seen rushing to the scene after the explosion.
