Islamic terrorists trigger riot inside prison, 5 officers and 1 inmate dead

Detainee Uprising Outside Jakarta Is Claimed by Islamic State

"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.

At least five counter-terrorism police have been killed and one is being held hostage by Islamist militants in clashes at a jail outside Jakarta, Indonesia.

But a link to Islamist terrorists was made after a publication of the Islamic State group's Amaq News Agency.

He said a dispute had broken out late on Tuesday with prisoners who objected to authorities making checks on their food. He said police were still negotiating with the prisoners.

"One of our colleagues is still inside, held hostage", Iqbal said, adding that the situation is under control and negotiations continue. "We have to apply a persuasive approach, as the inmates are convicted terrorists, so special steps need to be undertaken". Local media reported that detainees had seized weapons and were involved in a shootout, and that six bodies had been removed from the detention center and transferred to National Police hospital in the capital, Jakarta.

Mourinho Open To Swap Martial And Willian
Manchester United are said to be keen on a swap deal involving Anthony Martial moving to Borussia Dortmund in part-exchange for Christian Pulisic .

Brigadier General M. Iqbal, Head of the Public Information Bureau of the National Police Public Relations Division, when reviewing the scene on Wednesday morning, May 9, confirmed the steps already taken.

TV footage showed police maintaining tight security around the jail and moving onlookers away from the entrance.

Islamic State sympathizers 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.

Last week anti-terrorism police arrested three militants suspected of planning an attack on three other police buildings in West Java.
