JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Indonesian National Police has identified a woman who carried out a lone wolf attack on the force’s headquarters in Jakarta, in what they suspected to be an attempted assassination of Indonesian National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo.

The police also arrested dozens of people throughout Indonesia for their complicity in a suicide blast at Makassar cathedral last Sunday, which killed the two suicide bombers and wounded 20 churchgoers and others.

A number of the suspects resided in the East Jakarta district of Condet and the West Java regency of Bekasi near the capital.

And the Indonesian National Transportation Committee or KNKT made a breakthrough in unraveling the mystery behind the crash of Sriwijaya Air Flight SJ182, which went down in waters near the Thousand Islands off Jakarta.

The crash occurred minutes after the Boeing 737-500 took off from Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta Airport en route to Pontianak, West Kalimantan with 62 passengers and crew, none of whom survived the disaster. These stories and more on Indonesia Highlights:
