Six policemen killed in Indonesia prison riot

Six policemen killed in Indonesia prison riot

According to reports, the standoff developed into a hostage situation between inmates and prison officials at the National Police's Mobile Brigade Mako Brimob detention center in Depok, which houses imprisoned ISIL militants.

Islamist militants killed five police at a high-security Indonesian prison and were holding one hostage on Wednesday following clashes at the jail on the outskirts of Jakarta, police said.

"Six of them were our colleagues and one victim was an inmate we were forced to neutralize as he attempted to grab an officer's weapon", national police spokesman Muhammad Iqbal told reporters.

It happened four days after the arrests of three Islamic militants who planned to attack the headquarters and other police stations in the same town. He added that they were working to negotiate the release of one police officer being held hostage.

"We're still negotiating with them, we're still talking to them", he said.

He said the prison, at the Mobile Police Brigade (Brimob) headquarters, held around 130 convicted terrorists, but it was unclear how many were involved in the clashes.

The design of the iPhone X is such that there is no room left for the home button that has been synonymous with iPhones thus far. Four times as many smart TV shipments past year had Samsung's operating system as Android TV , according to IHS Markit.

In a message carried on its Amaq news agency, the Islamic State group (IS) claimed responsibility for the incident and said 10 counter-terrorism officers had been killed.

"The trigger (for the riot) was food, which must be checked to make sure there is not other stuff hidden inside it".

"I can say that the negotiation process is still ongoing".

Among the facility's prisoners is Aman Abdurrahman, an Islamic radical jailed for orchestrating an attack in Jakarta in 2016 that left eight people dead.

Two years ago, almost 500 inmates broke out from a prison after complaining about overcrowding and extortion.
