Militants Scream ‘Allahu Akbar’ Before Stabbing Police Officer To Death In Indonesia

Two alleged Islamic State group militants have stabbed a police officer to death in western Indonesia in the latest assault targeting officials in the world’s most populous Muslim country.

The two attackers shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’, or God is great, as they entered a security post in North Sumatra’s police headquarters in Medan city before Eid prayers to mark the end of Ramadan.

Several police officers fought back against the two militants, killing one and critically injuring another.

National police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said: ‘We suspect the attackers have links with ISIS and Bahrun Naim, because we found a ISIS flag, books and CDs linked to ISIS in the house of one attacker.’ The victim has been named as Aiptu Martua.
