    Indonesia: Police identified four out of five Jakarta attackers

    Jan 15, Jakarta: Police in Indonesia have identified four out of five of the Jakarta attackers on Thursday. Two were previously convicted militants, media reports said.

    All five died in the attacks, which left two civilians dead and were claimed by Islamic State (IS).

    Police named one - Afif Sunakim, seen carrying a gun and rucksack during the attacks. He was given a seven-year jail term for attending a militant camp.

    Three arrests were made on Friday but it is unclear if they are connected.

    Security forces battled militants for hours in the busy commercial district where the militants struck.

    A Canadian and an Indonesian national died, and at least 20 people were injured.

    The assault ended when two attackers died in a suicide bombing, police say, with the other three killed in gun battles.
