Explosion at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Makassar, Indonesia Kills 2 Bombers and Injures 19 Christians on Palm Sunday

There was a deadly explosion at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Makassar, Indonesia on Palm Sunday.

Two suicide bombers were killed and 19 Christians more were injured.

The bombers tried to enter the church on Palm Sunday.

The Straits Times reported:

A blast outside a Catholic church in South Sulawesi’s provincial capital Makassar on Sunday (March 28) killed two suspected suicide bombers and wounded at least 19 people, the police said.

National Police chief Listyo Sigit Prabowo told reporters one of the bombers was part of local terrorist outfit Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD). The JAD, which is loyal to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, is linked with a group involved in a militant attack on Jolo, in the Philippines in 2018.

In yesterday’s attack, two people on a motorcycle tried to enter the cathedral compound after a mass ended, said National Police spokesman Argo Yuwono.
