BALI (Indonesia), (Sputnik) – It is highly probable that the Daesh jihadist group was involved in explosions in Indonesia’s Jakarta, police spokesman Budi Gunawan said Thursday, as cited by the local media.
"It was most probably conducted by the Daesh," Gunawan said, as quoted by the Detik news outlet.
At least 10 people were killed in a series of explosions in the Indonesian capital after several assailants entered the downtown area on motorcycles, carrying rifles and explosives.
"Four of the assailants have been neutralized, the situation in the area (of the attacks) is calm," Iqbal said, as quoted by the news outlet.
Earlier on Thursday, President of Indonesia Joko Widodo called the incident an act of terrorism.
Daesh is outlawed in a number of countries, including the United States and Russia.
