Radical Islamist Indonesians hope to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with a bang. They are allegedly plotting to deploy suicide bombers to blast holiday parties all over the country.
Channel News-Asia reports that, "Indonesian police warned on Thursday that Islamic extremists may be planning to target worshippers at Christmas and New Year celebrations in the capital Jakarta and other parts of the country. National police chief Sutarman said there were indications that militants were heading to areas they wished to target, and may be assembling bombs."
Sutarman is quoted as saying that, "The terrorists have cells everywhere and they are active. We are continuing to pursue them."
According to Channel News-Asia, "Indonesia's small Christian minority has come under increasing pressure in recent years from Islamic extremists, who have forced the closure of churches and protested outside places of worship."
Sutarman added, "We call on people to stay calm as police will ensure security for those celebrating Christmas and New Year."
