Suspected ISIS Attack Leaves 7 Dead in Jakarta

At least seven people are dead after presumed ISIS-linked gunmen opened fire in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta. This is the first attack of its kind in the world's most populous Muslim country.

Reuters reports on the attack:

It took security forces about three hours to end the attack near a Starbucks cafe and Sarinah's, Jakarta's oldest department store, after a team of militants traded gunfire with police and blew themselves up.

An Indonesian and a Canadian were killed in the attack. Twenty people, including an Algerian, Austrian, German and Dutchman, were wounded.
