Jakarta, In­done­sia—po­lice take cover as they pur­sue sus­pects af­ter a se­ries of bombs killed at least two peo­ple and wounded 24 oth­ers on Jan­uary 14 in the cap­i­tal city of the world’s most

pop­u­lous Mus­lim coun­try. The Is­lamic State mil­i­tant group (ISIS) claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tacks,

and Jakarta’s po­lice chief, Tito Kar­na­vian, said those re­spon­si­ble took their or­ders from an In­done­sian named Bahrun Naim, who is be­lieved to be

in Syria. Two of the at­tack­ers died in sui­cide bomb­ings, and the other three were

killed by po­lice.
