The Islamic State group was responsible for suicide attacks against three churches in Indonesia that killed at least 11 people on Sunday, it said via its propaganda agency Amaq.
"Three martyrdom attacks killed 11 and wounded at least 41 among church guards and Christians," it said via the Telegram messaging app.
Alongside the 11 dead, dozens were wounded in seemingly coordinated attacks against the three churches in the city of Surabaya at around 7.30am local time (00.30GMT), police said.
