‘Islamic State’ claims responsibility for Jakarta attacks

The terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for the attacks in the Indonesian capital. Seven people, including all of the attackers, perished in the assault.

The so-called “Islamic State” (IS) terrorist organization said it was responsible for the attack in a busy commercial district of Jakarta on Thursday, according to a news agency affiliated with the group.
The Aamaq news agency quoted an unnamed source claiming responsibility for the attack, which left seven people – including the five attackers – dead after an explosion tore through a Starbucks frequented by upper-middle-class Indonesians, ex-pats and UN diplomats.
