Two police officers who suffered injuries during a Kampung Melayu suicide bomb attack on Wednesday underwent surgery this morning at Premier Jatinegara Hospital in East Jakarta.

“This morning, two people underwent surgery while two others are still under observation,” Premier Jatinegara Hospital spokesperson Susan Ananda said on Thursday morning as quoted by tribunnews.com.

Surgery was carried out on the victims, identified as Sec. Brig. Yogi and Sec. Brig. Ferry, to treat injuries they suffered when two pressure cooker bombs exploded, releasing shrapnel.

Yogi suffered severe wounds on his head and other parts of his body. 

“Yogi’s condition was more serious […] after the surgery we still need to observe him carefully in the intensive care room,” Suyatno, a Premiere Jatinegara Hospital supervisor, said.

There were five doctors who handled the surgeries, including ear and nose specialists, an ophthalmologist, an orthopedic surgeon and a plastic surgeon. (hol)
