With Al-Masdar being one of the first media outlets to report on the terrorist attack in Indonesia, further information has come out.

It is known that six explosions have rocked the area near the United Nations buildings in the capital of Indonesia.

It is now being reported that it was one police officer that has died and three civilians.

A United Nations worker has shown us the view from his office.

Meanwhile, parts of the gunfire have been uploaded to Twitter.

One of the six confirmed explosions has also been caught on video.

It has been reported that between 10-14 gunmen are still on the loose near the popular shopping mall, and some having escaped.

One of the explosions was a suicide attack, assumed to be the one on the police outpost.

There were four blast sites, which are yet to be confirmed where exactly.

There are also reports that some of the attackers were throwing grenades.

No militant group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
