properties for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of
Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)
“Indonesia Probes Islamic State Links in Police-Station Bombing,” by Ben Otto, Wall Street Journal, July 5, 2016: JAKARTA, Indonesia—Indonesian authorities were
investigating possible links to the militant group Islamic State after a
suicide bomber on a motorcycle blew himself up in an attack on a police
station in central Java early Tuesday.
Inspector General Condro Kirono, chief of the Central Java police,
said one officer was injured when the bomber entered the grounds of
police headquarters in the city of Solo. Police said they are still
investigating the attacker’s identity, and that the situation is under
control. Sutiyoso, the head of Indonesia’s national intelligence agency, told
private news channel Kompas TV it was very likely the attacker had ties
to Islamic State, which has been linked to deadly attacks in Turkey and
Bangladesh in recent days.
“Everything needs to be explored further, but…there’s indeed a
tendency” to believe there is a connection, said the intelligence chief,
who goes by one name. The Solo attack took place a day before Indonesia, which has the
world’s largest Muslim population, celebrates the festival of Eid
al-Fitr, to mark the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. Government
offices and many businesses are closed for the week around the country.
