Places of worship have now become targets of terrorists around the world. On Sunday, 20 people attending a church service were seriously injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up at Kepunton church in Solo town in Central Java province, Indonesia.
Indonesian authorities said the man who detonated the bomb was killed in the deadly attack on a place of worship in Indonesia. Authorities are still conducting a deeper investigation the possible suspects behind the deadly attack. According to reports, suicide bombing is a common crime in Indonesia, a secular nation of 237 million.
The suicide bombing attacks perpetrated in Indonesia are usually blamed on the al-Qaeda-linked network Jemaah Islamiyah and its offshoots since 2002, when a strike on two Bali nightclubs killed 202 people, most of them foreign tourists. The police vowed to do their best to resolve the suicide bombing incident and bring those involved in the attack to justice.
