At least seven people were killed—two civilians and five attackers—in bombings on the Indonesian capital Jakarta today, the New York Times reports.
At least two of the attackers were suicide bombers, detonating their explosives just outside a Starbucks across the road from a police post in a busy shopping district, according to Sky News, with blasts and gunfire between attackers and police near the Pakistani and Turkish Embassies extending into a three-hour siege.
One of the victims of the attacks was Canadian and the other Indonesian, the Times reports, with another 23 people injured.
A news outlet connect to the Islamic State terrorist group, the Aamaq news agency, is claiming that members of I.S. carried out the attack, according to The Associated Press, though the group has not officially claimed responsibility for the attack.
"They imitated the terror actions in Paris…they are likely from the (Islamic State) group," said Gen. Anton Charliyan, Indonesia's national police spokesperson.
Indonesians responded to the attacks by posting messages online with the hashtag #KamiTidakTakut, which translates to "We Are Not Afraid," the Independent reports, as people tweeted that street food vendors were back in action just hours after the attacks:
Saudi Arabian and American diplomats, who are currently meeting in the U.K., have condemned the attacks. "These acts of terror are not going to intimidate nation-states from protecting their citizens and continuing to provide real opportunity, education, jobs, possibilities of a future," said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
