  • Two policemen stand guard after an explosion in Surabaya in Indonesia

"The perpetrators allegedly committed SARA (an acronym for hate speech about race, religion or ethnicity) through Facebook and was then secured by Aceh police officers on Monday, May 14, at around 11:45 pm", Aceh Police spokesperson Misbahul Munauwar told Detik today.

Inspector general Machfud Arifin told CNN Indonesia that the suicide attacks were carried out using a motorbike at St Mary's church and a vehicle at another.

The girl was with two other adult attackers on a motorcycle and was thrown out of the moving vehicle but survived, police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said.

The parents of Indonesian children and young adults who took part in deadly suicide bombings in Surabaya had isolated them within a tightly knit circle of militant Islamists, police said on Tuesday.

According to police, Oepriarto was friends with the family that carried out Monday's police headquarters bombing and a third family, three members of which died when homemade bombs exploded in their apartment on Sunday night.

The family was one among hundreds in Indonesia, who had returned from Syria and has observed the IS occupation there.

IS claimed responsibility for the church bombings in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency.

Using women and children in militant attacks has always been a tactic deployed in other countries - Nigerian terror group Boko Haram often uses children as suicide bombers.

Facebook suspends 200 apps for misusing data, privacy probe continues
MPs have again criticised Facebook for submitting "insufficient" evidence to a parliamentary inquiry about how it handles data. Earlier, it was revealed that the British consulting firm Cambridge Analytica misused data of 87 million app users.

In all, 26 people - including 13 militants and their children - died since Sunday.

China said it was opposed to any form of terrorism.

Another family reportedly attacked a police station this morning, wounding 10 people including police officers.

The archipelago nation of some 17,000 islands has long struggled with radical militancy, including the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people - mostly foreign tourists - in the country's worst-ever terror attack.

"Don't hesitate to demand they step down from their positions to give a chance to those who are more reliable", said Rachland.

Oepriarto blew himself up at Surabaya Center Pentecostal Church, while his two sons killed themselves at Santa Maria Roman Catholic church.

The father of the family that killed the Christians on Mother's Day, Dita Futrianto, was the suspected head of the local cell of an Islamic State-inspired network called Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), the BBC reported, citing police.

The daughters were aged 9 and 12, while the sons were 16 and 18 years old, respectively.
