Twin Explosions Rock Jakarta Bus Station, 3 Dead


Jakarta: At least two people were killed and several injured after two powerful blasts took place at a bus terminal in East Jakarta on Wednesday night.

Jakarta Post reported that the blasts occurred at the Transjakarta bus terminal. “There were two blasts at around 9.00 pm, close to each other, there are three victims,” East Jakarta police chief Andry Wibowo told without saying whether the victims had been killed or injured.

“From the damage I can see the explosions were pretty big.” It was not immediately clear what caused the blasts at the Kampung Melayu terminal.

The explosions left people in a state of panic. In January 2016, ISIS jihadis carried out a terror attack on the Indonesian capital that claimed seven lives.
