Earlier on Sunday, Islamist militants killed at least 13 people in suicide attacks on three churches in Surabaya

A family of five, including a child, carried out the suicide bombing of a police headquarters in Indonesia’s second city Surabaya on Monday, police said, a day after a deadly wave of attacks on churches staged by another family.

“There were five people on two motorbikes. One of them was a little kid,” national police chief Tito Karnavian said.

“This is one family.”

An eight-year-old girl from the family survived the attack and was taken to hospital, while her mother, father and two brothers died in the blast, he said.

Another 10 people were wounded in the attack including civilians and police officers.
