  • 5 injured in sword attack at Indonesia church

A man with a sword allegedly slashed at church-goers as they prayed in Indonesia, injuring five people, CNN reported.

A 22-year-old man armed with a sword or machete attacked members of the congregation at St Lidwina Church.

Police arrived soon after the attack and fired a warning shot but the attacker refused to surrender.

He said: Everybody started panicking and screaming.

He charged at one of the officers with his sword and was shot. Police opened fire on the attacker, who's been hospitalized, it said. But he somehow managed to injure the officer before being subdued, Mr Cahyo added.

The victims were taken to Panti Rapih hospital for treatment.

Police said the man was a university student in his early 20s but could not confirm if the incident was terror-related.

The attack injured at least four people, including a police officer who tried to help the priest against the attack, according to police. The police are now investigating the motives of the assailant, who is believed to be a university student.

Several children were injured after a man threw Molotov cocktails at a church during a Sunday service in 2016.

Three months later, a church in Samarinda, East Kalimantan, was struck by a homemade bomb which injured four people.
