At least seven people have been killed in a series of
coordinated bomb and gun attacks in central Jakarta, Indonesia as blasts rang
out of the capital’s downtown area this morning.
An unknown number of people were injured in the security
operations at the Sarinah shopping complex on Thamrin Street in Jakarta’s
central district. Police said the attack has ended and that security forces
were in control of the area.
Earlier police reports said five gunmen were killed and that
another five policemen and seven civilians were also dead. Police later revised
the toll to a total of seven, including four attackers.

All six blasts occurred about 50 metres apart in the central
business district, which also houses a United Nations office.
Earlier, tweets from the account of Jeremy Douglas, regional
representative of the UN office on Drugs and Crime for Southeast Asia and the
Pacific, described a bomb and “serious” exchanges of gunfire on the
street outside his office. A police post was also destroyed in a grenade blast.
