3 injured in Poso police post bombing
Two bombs exploded at a traffic police post in Poso, Central Sulawesi, at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, injuring two police officers and one security guard.
According to witnesses, a small explosion occurred first followed by a second larger blast that could be heard three kilometers away.
The bombs, thought to be planted behind the police post, left the post in ruins.
The three injured men, First Brig. Rusliadi, Second Brig. Ruslan and security guard Muhammad Akbar, were hit by shrapnel and are currently being treated at Poso General Hospital.
The Gegana bomb squad arrived at the scene and combed the surroundings, while the perpetrators as well as the motive behind the attack are still under investigation.
“We haven’t figured out who’s responsible,” said National Police Brig. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar as quoted by tempo.co. (han)
