Suicide bombers have struck outside a Catholic church in the Indonesian city of Makassar on Palm Sunday, injuring more than a dozen people. President Widodo said he “strongly condemned this act of terror.”
A Catholic church in Indonesia’s South Sulawesi province was rocked by a suicide bombing on Sunday, authorities said.
The blast in the city of Makassar wounded at least 14 people including church workers and worshippers.
Police chief Listyo Sigit Prabowo said the attackers were members of Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), an extremist group also blamed for a deadly church bombing in the Indonesian city of Surabaya in 2018.
