Bomb attack on church in Indonesia

On Palm Sunday, two Islamic Jihadists suicide bombers blew themselves up in front of a packed out church in Indonesia. Twenty people were injured in the blast in front of Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral in Makassar.

The explosion took place as people were leaving from the first service and entering the Cathedral in preparation for a second service.

The Daily Mail provides the details:

Two suicide bombers believed to be members of a militant network with Islamic State allegiances have blown themselves up outside a church packed with Palm Sunday Mass parishioners in Indonesia.

At least 20 church parishioners and security guards were injured in the blast outside the Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral in Makassar on the island of Sulawesi on Sunday morning.

The Roman Catholic congregation had just finished celebrating Palm Sunday Mass when they were rocked by a loud bang outside on the street. 

Church priest Reverend Wilhelmus Tulak said the blast went off as a first batch of parishioners were walking out of the church and another group was coming in.
