Indonesian police said Tuesday they were searching for six men suspected of involvement in bombing attacks on Christian churches in the strife-torn province of Central Sulawesi on the weekend.
Detectives had descriptions of the six assailants from witnesses of bomb and gun attacks on the Emanuel and Anugerah churches in the provincial capital Palu, said local police chief Aryanto Sutadi.
«They are now being hunted down,» he told AFP.
Sunday’s attacks in a region that has seen sporadic violence between Christians and Muslims since more than 1,000 people died in fighting four years ago have raised concerns over security ahead of the Christmas period.
