At least three suicide bombers detonated themselves in front of the three churches in Indonesia's second-largest city Surabaya City in East Java on Sunday, killing at least two and injuring over a dozen, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

The deadly explosions all reportedly occurred within 10 minutes of each other with the first explosion reportedly at 7.30 am local time (00:30 GMT). Local police were also investigating whether there was an explosion at a fourth church.

 

Local authorities have been unable to currently verify the number of casualties,
