Families behind Indonesia bombings belonged to same religious study group

Karnavian said the father of the family that carried out the church bombings was head of the Surabaya cell of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, an Indonesian militant network affiliated with IS that has been implicated in attacks in Indonesia in the past year.

Authorities said they received a report about WF's comment and then conducted an investigation leading to her arrest in the Banda Raya subdistrict of Banda Aceh on Monday night.

The content of the films included footage from Syria and Iraq, as well as Isis attacks in France, and was meant to encourage those in the group to commit terrorist attacks, he said.

Christian leaders called for unity following a spate of suicide bombings that targeted three churches, an apartment building and the police headquarters in Indonesia's second city, the deadliest attacks in more than a decade.

The IS statement claiming responsibility for the attacks didn't mention anything about families or children taking part and said there were only three attackers.

Moderate Muslims are, if anything, even more threatening to them than Christians, Jews or agnostic westerners could ever hope to be.

"What happened is their parents indoctrinated the children", said Arifin, "So when the mother asked them to wear the waist bombs they did it".

New Zealand exported $120 million of goods to Iran past year , with dairy products making up three-quarters of that. Germany said it would spend the next few months trying to persuade Washington to change its mind.

The attack which killed at least 13 and injured 40, was orchestrated by Dita Oepriarto and his wife Puji Kuswati. The attack killed the four perpetrators.

Tito added that unlike any other explosives, TATP did not need a detonator to set the bomb off. "Heat or a mere shaking motion can cause the bomb to explode".

Oepriarto blew himself up at Surabaya Center Pentecostal Church, while his two sons killed themselves at Santa Maria Roman Catholic church.

Another child of Tri Murtiono, an 8 year old girl survived the incident.

Christians are calling for prayer after several churches were attacked in Indonesia - with a single family suspected of carrying out the bombings.

Further details on the terror suspect would be released after examination by police Disaster Victim Identification unit was done, Frans said.
