A suicide bomber blew himself up at a police station in Indonesia yesterday, killing himself and wounding six others including for officers, according to authorities who described the 24-year-old attacker as a “lone wolf”.
The motive for the attack was not immediately known, but police stations have been frequent targets for radicals in the world’s biggest Muslim majority nation.
The blast happened around 8:45 am local time at the police compound in Medan on Sumatra island.
The attacker -- whose identification listed him as a student -- wore an explosive device on his body.
The attack came a day after Indonesia launched a website that lets the public report “radical” content posted by government workers, including material that promotes hate or intolerance.
