Armed group attacks Ahmadiyah mosque in Kebayoran Lama

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

A group of unidentified men attacked Ahmadiah Mosque Al Hidayah in Kebayoran Lama, South Jakarta, in the wee hours of Friday.

No fatalities were reported, but facilities such as lamps and window panes were smashed.

“The attackers claimed to be from the Majelis Pembela Rasulullah [Rasulullah Defender’s Council],” the mosque security head Deden Sudjana was quoted as saying by news portal.

He added that the attack lasted less than a minute. The men were armed with swords and machetes.

“Police officers have been stationed at the mosque since last week to prevent attacks similar to those at Ahmadiyah mosques in Bogor [West Java] and Warakas [North Jakarta],” he said.

He said police fired warning shots to disperse the attackers but made no arrests.
