Suicide bombers attacked three churches in Indonesia's second-largest city of Surabaya on Sunday, killing at least six people and wounding more than 35 others, police said.

Debris are seen outside Santa Maria church where an explosion went off in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia, Sunday.

"There have been three attacks at three churches", East Java Police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said. "Police have arrested a man who was about to attack the fourth Congregational Church, the attack was broken", - quotes the edition the statement of the Deputy mayor of Surabaya, Wisnu Sakti Buana.

Recall, may 13, in the Indonesian city of Surabaya, East Java province, during the morning Sunday bombings of three churches.

The deadly blasts all occurred within 10 minutes of each other, police said, with the first explosion at 0030 GMT.

The attacks come days after militant Islamist prisoners killed five members of an elite counter-terrorism force during a 36-hour standoff at a high security jail on the outskirts of the capital, Jakarta.

Red Sox relievers are tied for 21st in the majors in eighth inning ERA (5.00). "Both of these games have come down to the wire". The new AL East leaders have sole possession of the best record in the majors for the first time since July 27, 2012.

The Southeast Asian nation's 260 million people includes significant numbers of Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but there are concerns over rising intolerance.

Authorities suspect the Islamic State-inspired group Jeemah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) of being behind the attacks, although no one has claimed responsibility yet.

Indonesia has carried out a sustained crackdown on militants since bombings by al-Qaida-affiliated radicals in Bali in 2002 killed 202 people.

Hundreds of Indonesians have flocked to fight with IS, sparking fears that domestic extremist outfits could get a new lease on life.

The most serious incident was in January 2016 when four suicide bombers and gunmen attacked a shopping area in central Jakarta.

The attack on a district packed with malls, embassies and United Nations offices left around 20 others injured. As a result of this attack also killed two people. According to the latest data, 8 people died and more than 40 were injured.
