Explosion Occurred in Kampung Melayu, East Jakarta

It was not immediately clear what caused the blasts at the Kampung Melayu terminal, which is served by mini-vans and buses.

A police bomb squad was investigating the explosion.

He said he went out of his house once he heard the explosion.

Authorities in the world's biggest Muslim-majority country have been increasingly anxious about a resurgence in radicalism, driven in part by a new generation of militants inspired by Islamic State.

"We can not say yet how many injured, killed as of now", he added.

He said the suspected attacker's head was found in a bus stop and his hand was on the road.

The perpetrator was also killed in the blast, Deputy National Police Chief Syafrudin told reporters at the scene.

Witness Rohimat told detik.com: "It was at the Kampung Melayu Terminal". He also said there was a strong smell after the blasts.

"I have to convey my deepest condolences because three police officers died", he said. A new threat has emerged in the past several years from extremists who sympathize with the Islamic State group.

The country saw a deadly attack in 2002 when bombers targeted the popular tourist destination of Bali, killing 204 people.

Last year, a bombing and shooting attack, claimed by the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, left four attackers and four civilians dead in the Indonesian capital.

The horror explosions come after two men, aged 20 and 23, were caned for having sex with each other in a province on the northern tip of Indonesia's Sumatra island.
