Indonesia on security alert as police probe attacks

Army trucks thundered through Indonesia’s capital on Friday as authorities boosted security at possible terror targets and probed a suspected Islamic State cell blamed for Jakarta’s deadly terror attacks. Police in the world’s most populous Muslim country have blamed the carnage on a network of Islamic State fighters from Southeast Asia forged in the radical jihadist group’s war in Syria and Iraq. “An alert has been imposed throughout Indonesia,” said national police spokesman Anton Charliyan.
