  • A damaged motorbike is seen at the scene outside a church following a suicide bomb in Surabaya

National police chief Tito Karnavian said that the father exploded a auto bomb, two sons aged 18 and 16 used a motorcycle for their attack, and the mother was with daughters aged 12 and 9 for her attack. A large blast was heard hours after the attacks, which Mangera said was a bomb disposal squad dealing with a device.

Mangera, the Surabaya police spokesman, said police responded about 9 p.m.to an explosion in a residential building in Sidoarjo, a district bordering Surabaya.

All the 6 family members also died.

Wasisto said they were members of Jamaah Ansharut Daulah, a network of about two dozen terrorism groups affiliated with the Islamic State, according to the State Department.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the bombings through its propaganda agency, Amaq, describing them as a "martydom" operation against Christian "crusaders" and security personnel. Authorities have not confirmed the claim.

So, a mother with two children, blew himself up in the same Church, at the same time the father of three sons carried out the explosions in others. Based on their remains, Karnavian said the mother and daughters were all wearing explosives around their waists.

The father, JAD cell leader Dita Priyanto, drove a bomb-laden auto into the Surabaya Centre Pentecostal Church while his sons rode motorcycles into Santa Maria church, where they detonated explosives they were carrying, Karnavian said.

On the similar time, the final stated, Sopriyanto's sons drove bikes to Santa Maria Catholic Church, the place they, too, detonated bombs.

Police identified the father as Dita Futrianto, saying he was the head of a local JAD cell.

Forensic evidence indicates the bombs were attached to the attackers' bodies, Karnavian said. "We suspect that there's a command from Nusakambangan for them to act", he added, referring to the name of a prison that houses some of Indonesia's most risky inmates. At the family's home, investigators found three plastic boxes containing pipe bombs, Surabaya police Grand Commissioner Rudi Setiawan said.

Indonesia's Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi tweeted condolences to the bombing victims with the hashtags #UnitedAgainstTerrorism and #WeAreNotAfraid.

The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta condemned the attacks.

In recent years, Indonesia has experienced a resurgence of Islamist activity, some of whose attacks have been linked to rise of ISIS.

"The Secretary-General expresses his condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a swift recovery to those injured", said the United Nations spokesman's statement. Indonesia's President Joko Widodo has called the attacks "barbaric" and vowed to find and punish anyone involved in the bombings.

The world's most populous Muslim country, Indonesia has long struggled with homegrown Islamic terrorist organizations, particularly the al-Qaeda-linked group Jemaah Islamiyah. More than 82% of its roughly 261 million people follow Islam. About 87 percent of the population is Muslim, while Christians make up about 10 percent, according to a 2010 estimate from the Central Intelligence Agency.
