MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A Daesh flag was found at one of the six sites where a series of blasts occurred in the Indonesian capital on Thursday in addition to the three arrests, Jakarta police headquarters spokesman Insp. Gen. Anton Charliyan said, according to the Kompas daily.
The arrests were made in the city of Depok, on Jakarta’s southern border, on a tip that the three had "threatened a woman to join the group," the city’s police chief told the newspaper.
Daesh, a jihadist group outlawed in countries including Russia and the United States, claimed responsibility for Thursday’s blasts.
Five of the seven casualties are reported to be the gunmen, who were said to have carried out the attacks on motorcycles, wearing suicide belts and armed with assault rifles.
