The police after conducting a preliminary investigation on the suicide bombings in the Kampung Melayu bus terminal in East Jakarta—an attack that killed three police officers—have determined that the bombs were low explosives.
“The bombs were low explosives. The bombs contained aluminium scraps,” National Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Martinus Sitompul said, as quoted by Kompas TV on Thursday.
Martinus said the distance between the bombs was about 10 to 12 meters.
He said the police were investigating whether the deadly bombings, which also injured at least ten people, involved accomplices. (jun)
