A year ago, four gunmen and suicide bombers mounted a brazen strike in the heart of Jakarta in the name of ISIS. It was the first ISIS-inspired attack in Indonesia, and one that would signal the start of a campaign of terror in the country. The Sunday Times finds out what has changed for people living and working in the capital, and examines the looming threat of ISIS in the world’s most populous Muslim nation.
… Experts like associate research fellow V. Arianti of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research said the Indonesian security apparatus has been successful in mounting several counter-terrorism operations to capture and kill terrorists, and thwarting a number of plots.
That means Indonesians are able to go on with their lives, despite a belief that it is a matter of when, not if, terrorists will strike again.
