Police in Indonesia say guns used in last week’s terrorist attack in Jakarta were likely to have originated in the Philippines.
A group of men detonated a bomb and shot at civilians in the center of the Indonesian capital on Thursday, killing 4 people and wounding 26 others.
A group calling itself a branch of the Islamic State militant group has claimed responsibility. 12 suspects have been arrested so far. Police say they have found 11 guns used in the attack, and in places related to the suspects.
Police are investigating whether the attackers have any possible connection with Abu Sayyaf, a Philippine-based militant group that expresses support for Islamic State militants.
