Low-intensity bomb blast rocks Buddhist temple in Jakarta

Sydney, Aug. 5 (ANI): A low-grade bomb rocked a Buddhist temple in Jakarta, injuring one person.

The Indonesian police found another unexploded bomb at the Ekayana Buddhist Centre in western Jakarta following the explosion late on Sunday.

According to the Herald Sun, chief police detective Sutarman said the blast was of low-intensity and the temple was not damaged.

The report said that in May, police arrested two alleged Muslim militants on suspicion of planning an attack on the Myanmar (Burma) embassy in Jakarta.

Police said the suspects were seeking to avenge attacks on Muslims, which have claimed more than 200 lives in the Buddhist-majority Myanmar since last year, the report added. (ANI)
