Indonesia violence: Samurai sword-armed men target police station

Four men who attacked a police station with samurai swords in Indonesia have been shot dead, authorities say.

The group began the assault by ramming a car into the police headquarters in the town of Pekanbaru in Riau province.

A police officer was killed and one of the assailants arrested. The Islamic State (IS) group has claimed the attack via its news outlet.

It comes after a series of suicide attacks carried out by families that have shocked the country.

Police blame a local IS-inspired group, Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), for the attacks in the city of Surabaya.

Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim-majority country.
Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 1-4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible


Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
