BANGKOK, January 14. /TASS/. Organizers of the attack in the center of Jakarta that killed seven people tried to imitate the coordinated attacks on Paris in November last year, Indonesian police spokesman Anton Charliyan told reporters on Thursday.
Charliyan said the attackers were "likely" connected to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group (outlawed in Russia). Indonesian President Joko Widodo said the attacks were an "act of terror."
At least seven people have been killed in multiple explosions and gunfire in Jakarta, Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said. "Five terrorists are dead," the minister who arrived to the site of the attacks said. He also confirmed that one Dutch national was killed in multiple explosions.
The coordinating minister said there were five blasts - two near a Starbucks outlet and other three near a police box not far from the Sarinah shopping center.
Indonesian police said four attackers were arrested.
