Police officer dies in Jakarta suicide bombing


A suspected suicide bomb attack in the Indonesian capital Jakarta has left at least one police officer dead and five others injured, police say.
There were two blasts about five minutes apart at about 21:00 local time (14:00 GMT) near a bus station in Kampung Melayu in the east of the city.
The suspected attacker was also killed.
Indonesia has seen a series of small-scale attacks since January last year, when eight people died in a gun and bomb attack in the centre of Jakarta.
The so-called Islamic State (IS) militant group said they carried out the attack last January, its first in South East Asia.
More recent incidents have also been linked to the group.
