Suicide bombing at Indonesian police station caught on CCTV camera (VIDEO)

Suicide bombing at Indonesian police station caught on CCTV camera (VIDEO)

CCTV footage has emerged purportedly showing the moment a suicide bombing occurred at an Indonesian police station as two motorcycles drive into a checkpoint. Four officers and six civilians were injured in the blast.

The attack occurred in the port city of Surabaya on the Indonesian island of Java on Monday morning. “Clearly it’s a suicide bombing,” East Java police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said later at a briefing.


AP released CCTV footage from the scene, which appears to show two motorcycles driving up to the police station checkpoint. Moments later, when the motorcycles pull up near a car, the blast goes off. Several officers were standing nearby when the explosion took place.
