Militants were planning embassy attack: Indonesian police

Indonesian police arrested a third Islamic State-linked militant Sunday accused of plotting to bomb the Myanmar embassy in Jakarta, as anger grows at a violent military crackdown on Rohingya Muslims. The militants — all from a domestic cell affiliated with the Syria-based jihadist group — had amassed enough explosives to create bombs more powerful than those used in the 2002 Bali bombings, which killed 202 people, police say. “They were helping plan a bomb attack against parliament, the national police headquarters, the embassy of Myanmar and several television stations,” national police spokesman Rikwanto said in a text message.
