Sword-wielding attacker unmasked as would-be IS terrorist
The 23-year-old Muslim student had applied to travel to Syria, but had been denied. The Indonesian national police chief stated, “He ended up launching his attack here.”
Investigations to determine whether the attacker was operating alone, or as part of a group, are ongoing.
A pastor and three other people were injured in the attack which took place during a service at a church in Sleman on Sunday 11 February.
