Terror suspect killed in fresh gunfire in Indonesia's Surabaya

Officers stand guard outside the local police headquarters following an attack in Surabaya East Java Indonesia Monday May 14

An eight-year-old girl, who was reportedly with the family, survived the blast and was being treated in a hospital, said an East Java police spokesman. Anton died after police officers gunned him down to prevent him from triggering another bomb.

It's the first time in the history of Indonesian terrorism that suicide bombers have involved children.

"A fire exchange has occurred, claiming one life aged between 39 and 41", East Java Police Headquarters Spokesperson Frans Barung Mangera said.

But on Sunday, they fanned out with suicide bombs attached to themselves and their children, attacking three churches.

At least 11 people, including a suicide bomber, were killed and 41 injured on Sunday in bomb attacks on three churches in the Indonesian city of Surabaya.

On Sunday night, a bomb in the Wonocolo low-priced housing complex in Sidoarjo exploded prematurely, killing a woman and her 17-year-old child, police said.

Terrorist organisations such as Islamic State, al-Quaeda, the Taliban, and this latest group - the so called Jemaah Anshorut Daulah or JAD, want to spread fear, chaos, civil unrest and uncertainty in order to weaken political, social and civil power structures and draw new recruits to their evil cause.

Newcomer Heather Wright will be replacing School Board member Claire Bean, who has opted not to run for reelection. Poll watchers will be available to assist anyone who needs instructions on how to cast a write-in ballot.

Using women and children in militant attacks has always been a tactic deployed in other countries - Nigerian terror group Boko Haram often uses children as suicide bombers.

All told, 26 people died in the two days of attacks including a total of 13 militants and their children.

The family was one among hundreds in Indonesia, who had returned from Syria and has observed the IS occupation there. Jemaah Islamiyah, the al-Qaida affiliated network responsible for the Bali attacks, was obliterated by a sustained crackdown on militants by Indonesia's counterterrorism police with USA and Australian support.

The building is located behind Taman police station in Sidoarjo Regency which is bordered by Surabaya city where three churches were targetted earlier in the day.

Terrorist in Indonesia made police their main target after a number of their leaders and fellow terrorist fighters were arrested or killed by special anti terrorist police squad. The incidents left 18 people killed including the family of six. The mother and her 17-year-old daughter were killed when a bomb handled by the father exploded prematurely.

Television footage appeared to show a person on a motorcycle driving into the grounds of a church before a bomb was detonated.
