Meanwhile, National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian had earlier confirmed that the suicide bombers, who had attacked the Police Headquarters in Surabaya on Monday morning, were members of one family.

The Police chief informed the press on Monday that the attackers had used two motorcycles with explosive bombs. "They were five suicide bombers, who belonged to one family," he stated.

During the attacks, they blew themselves up. Four of them died.

"They were attempting to enter the complex, but the security was tight. When they were stopped, a police car was entering, and the explosion then occurred. Four of them died and one of them, a child, was seen stumbling around after the blast and survived," he revealed.

He remarked that the explosion had injured a police officer, who survived the bomb blast. The attackers belonged to the same group of suicide bombers that had attacked three churches in Surabaya and killed 18 and injured dozens others in Surabaya on Sunday.

They belong to the cell of the Jamaah Ansharud Dualah, an extremist group affiliated with the ISIS network.
