Jeremey Douglas, a United Nations Regional Rep, tweed several messages about several bomb explosions in Jakarta. This is a developing story...



Several blasts and exchanges of heavy gunfire have rocked the centre of the Indonesian capital Jakarta.

Local media has reported at least three explosions, although there are also reports of up to six blasts. There are also reports of heavy gunfire nearby and unconfirmed reports a police officer has been shot.





A massive #bomb went off in front of our new #Indonesia office as @collie_brown & I exit car. Chaos & we're going into lock-down Source





Serious exchange of fire in downtown #Jakarta. Didn't experience this in 3.5 years in #Pakistan Source





And folks in office saying think it is a #Paris type #foreignfigthers #ISIS supporters attack. Given 500 in #Syria wouldn't be huge surprise source


Also... maybe unrelated but Sublimecraft also already alerted ATS to a development in Australia. Sydney Opera House evacuated, Ferries cancelled, massive police operation underway

Heres an embed for that


They seemed to be in the open, like a signal more than a maximum effect move. Perhaps the signal for the gunmen??
Update: Guess they said it was grenades, and not IED type explosives. Explains that blast radius.
What the? A live stream?? How does this work?

I saw the vid on skynews and those bombs looked poorly made... what they hoping to do with those?

several explosions but inly several killed?

Its good there werent more casualties but you know what i mean... you'd expect more from several blasts!

Interesting analysis on why Indonesia got hit by the latest bomb attack :

Indonesia snubs Saudi ‘anti-terror’ coalition... then its capital gets hit

It truly makes sense.
