Jakarta Terror Attack Was Funded by ISIS: Indonesia Police

An audacious bomb and gun attack on Westerners in the heart of Indonesia's capital was funded by ISIS, police said Friday after arresting three men on suspicion of links to the plot, seizing a militant flag from the home of one suspect.

National police chief Gen. Badrodin Haiti told reporters that Thursday's four-hour attack was funded by ISIS through Bahrun Naim, an Indonesian who spent one year in jail for illegal possession of weapons in 2011 and is now in Syria fighting for the self-declared caliphate.
