Indonesia: Suicide blast outside Catholic church leaves 14 hurt

Makassar: At least 14 people were injured as a suspected suicide blast hit outside a Catholic church in the Indonesian city of Makassar on Sunday, media reports said.

Police said an explosion happened as two people tried to enter the church on Palm Sunday, the first day of Easter, reports BBC.

A destroyed motorbike and body parts were found at the scene and police said the two attackers had died, reports the British news channel.

No group has claimed responsibility for the incident so far.

Religious Affairs Minister Yaqut Cholil Qoumas has condemned the attack.

"Whatever the motive is, this attack cannot be justified by any religion because it only does harm to other people," he was quoted as saying by BBC.
