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.
