Police add 6 more suspects in Solo bombing
The National Police say they have named six more suspects in Sunday's suicide bomb attack on GBIS church in Surakarta, Central Java, and added them to its wanted list.
Four of the suspects were also implicated in the suicide bombing of a police compound in Cirebon, West Java, earlier this year. Police revealed the suspects by their initials: B, H, Y and H.
National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Anton Bachrul Alam said the police could not reveal the initials of the two other suspects.
“We've questioned 37 witnesses,” Anton said Friday in Jakarta, as quoted by Antara news agency.
The police revealed earlier that the alleged suicide bomber killed in the Surakarta church bombing was Pino Damayanto aka Ahmad Urip aka Ahmad Yosefa Hayat aka Hayat aka Raharjo.
Pino and Mohammad Syarif, the suicide bomber of a mosque in the Cirebon police compound, were reportedly active members of hardline group Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT), founded by noted terrorist convict Abubakar Ba'asyir.
