3 dead, 1 injured in sword attack on Indonesia police headquarters

Indonesia police shoot dead four men after attack on Riau police headquarters in Pekanbaru

Indonesian authorities said today they shot and killed three "alleged terrorists" who staged an attack on a police headquarters that left one officer dead and several wounded, the local police chief said.

A van carrying four men drove up to the front gate of the outpost of the city of Riau, and one of the men jumped out of the vehicle and began attacking police with a samurai sword.

The attacks have put Indonesia on edge as the world's biggest Muslim majority country starts the holy fasting month of Ramadan from Thursday.
