Six Dead in Depok Prison Riot

The country is embroiled in an ongoing armed struggle with Islamic State.

Abdurrahman and Purnama, better known as Ahok, are not housed in the part of the prison where the riot broke out. Local roads in the area have been cordoned off and heavily-armed police officers are positioned around the building.

However, authorities rejected a claim from the Islamic State (IS) group made through its Amaq News Agency that it was responsible for the riot.

However, Iqbal denied the IS was behind the attack or that it had been planned.

Truck overturns on Poland highway spilling tons of chocolate
Even though no one was hurt in the accident, our heart is still breaking for the loss of this delicious dessert. Think about how hard it is to get chocolate out of clothing.

In an interview with MetroTV station, police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said the inmates who provoked the riot were members of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, a network of Indonesian extremist groups formed in 2015 that pledges allegiance to Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. After the situation was successfully controlled, the police confiscated a number of weapons that allegedly deprived the prisoners.

"Six of them were our colleagues and one victim was an inmate we were forced to neutralize as he attempted to grab an officer's weapon", national police spokesman Muhammad Iqbal told reporters.

"We're still negotiating with them, we're still talking to them", he said.

"The majority of terrorism convicts, above 90%, have surrendered", he said.

IS sympathisers have carried out a series of mostly low-level attacks in Indonesia over the past few years. In 2017 two suicide bombers killed three police and wounded 12 others at a Jakarta bus terminal.

Clashes at the detention center came just one day after the National Police arrested three individuals in Bogor, also in West Java, for supposedly planning a string of attacks on police stations across the province.
