BANGKOK, January 14. /TASS/. There were no indications that the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization is behind the attacks in the Indonesian capital Jakarta, head of national intelligence agency Sutiyoso told journalists on Thursday.
"This is definitely terrorism but there are no indications yet that it's ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — former name of IS] related," Sutiyoso said.
The attack was carried out by seven militants, four of them were wiped out and another three arrested in the special operation, local police reported, adding that they took control of the security situation in the center of the Indonesian capital.
A series of explosions hit Jakarta earlier on Thursday killing at least seven people, including a UN employee, who was a Dutch national. Indonesian President Joko Widodo said the attacks were an "act of terror."

A policeman was killed by a grenade explosion, three civilians were injured in a shootout. According to the law enforcement agencies, the gunmen then threw a grenade at the Starbucks cafe and hid themselves in the building of Jakarta Theater where they were neutralized.
