There has been another attack in Indonesia's second-largest city of Surabaya. A car bomb exploded at 8:50am local time at the police headquarters. A number of officers were injured. It comes after a family of six launched suicide attacks on Christians attending Sunday services.
Sources close to police say the rioters, who claimed loyalty to Islamic State (ISIS), seized control of 88 firearms, including 59 assault rifles and 29 pistols, and a staggering 28,400 rounds of ammunition.
Indonesian police have had a sharp wake-up call following the May 9-10 riot by hard-core Islamic militants at a police detention center on the southern outskirts of Jakarta. The siege left five policemen brutally murdered and the terrorists in charge of enough weaponry to start a war.

Indonesia is a viscous ants nest... the largest Muslim population in the world
Having been to Bali a couple of times in my younger years (you couldn't pay me to go back) I warn friends now to second think going over there for a holiday
Bali's the absolute prime place for a large scale attack against western tourists... all drunk, fat, lazy... drinking alcohol and whoring balinese girls in a very muslim place awash with militants is dumb if you ask me.
Islam is the most adhered religion in Indonesia, with 87.2% of Indonesian population identifying themselves as Muslim in 2010 estimate. Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world, with approximately 225 million Muslims.
In terms of denomination, absolute majority adheres to Sunni Islam, while there are around one million Shias (0.5%), who are concentrated around Jakarta, and about 400,000 Ahmadi Muslims (0.2%)
