IslamNews – A suspected suicide bomb attack outside a Catholic church in the Indonesian city of Makassar has left at least 14 people wounded, police say.

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

A destroyed motorbike and body parts were found at the scene and police said the two attackers had died.

Militant Islamists have attacked churches in the past but no group has yet said it was behind the bombing.

Religious Affairs Minister Yaqut Cholil Qoumas condemned the attack and urged police to increase security measures at places of worship.

“Whatever the motive is, this attack cannot be justified by any religion because it only does harm to other people,” he said.
