- Story Text: Indonesia on Thursday (May 25) mourned the victims of a suspected suicide blast that killed three police officers at a Jakarta bus terminal that authorities believe is highly likely to be linked to the Islamic State group.
Six police officers and six civilians were also wounded in the twin blasts that were detonated five minutes apart by the two suspected attackers in the Indonesian capital late on Wednesday evening, police said.
