Deadly Jail Riot Near Indonesian Capital Is Claimed by ISIS

Indonesian Police officers walk past roadblock outside the headquarters of elite police force Mobile Brigade following a prison riot inside the compound in Depok West Java Wednesday

The terrorist inmates seized all weapons of five anti-terror policemen whom they killed on Wednesday during the clash in one of the blocks of the prison which is located on the outskirt of Indonesian capital, according to him.

Muhammad Iqbal, National Police Spokesman, told reporters that the clash was started by a trivial matter related to food from families.

In an interview with MetroTV station, police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said the inmates who provoked the riot were members of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, a network of Indonesian extremist groups formed in 2015 that pledges allegiance to Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. "But if there is a threat to officers or others, we will take very strong action", he said, adding that the hostage was reported to be safe and the officers' bodies have been transferred to a nearby hospital.

Mr Iqbal denied IS was behind the attack or that it had been planned.

The former Heisman Trophy victor revealed in February that he has bipolar disorder. "He's fine and headed home", Michaels said. Manziel was in Humble, Texas, to play in a golf tournament hosted by former Aggies wide receiver Mike Evans .

In a message carried on its Amaq news agency, the Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the incident and claimed 10 counter-terrorism officers had been killed. He said police were still negotiating with the prisoners. "We have to apply a persuasive approach, as the inmates are convicted terrorists, so special steps need to be undertaken".

TV footage showed police maintaining tight security around the jail and moving onlookers away from the entrance. Last week three militants suspected of planning attacks on police stations were arrested in West Java.

In January 2016, four Islamic State-linked militants mounted a gun-and-bomb attack at a busy intersection outside a Starbucks cafe in central Jakarta, killing themselves and four others.
