Indonesia police shoot dead bomber

Indonesian police have shot dead a man who attacked them with a homemade bomb and is suspected of being part of a terror network targeted in deadly raids last week, an official said Tuesday.

The man threw the pipe-bomb at a traffic police post in Tasikmalaya city, West Java province, late yesterday but it failed to explode, said national police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar. Two traffic policemen chased the suspect but he resisted arrest by attacking one of the officers with a machete and attempting to fire a homemade gun at them which failed to go off, he said. ‘Police then shot him dead,’ Amar added.

One of the policemen was injured in the machete attack and was receiving treatment in hospital. The man was suspected of being part of a terror network.
