Two suspected suicide bombings rocked a bus terminal in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, Wednesday, killing at least three police officers.

Five other officers and five civilians were wounded in the attacks.

“Tonight, to Indonesian citizens and all of us who are here at the scene, I express very deep concern. A bomb explosion has occurred and for now it is believed to have been a suicide bombing,'' Vice National Police Chief Syafruddin, who uses one name, told reporters.

The blasts occurred near Kampung Melayu terminal, a station serving minivans and buses, in a working class district of eastern Jakarta not popular among tourists or foreigners.

East Jakarta Police Chief Andry Wibowo said the damage in the area was “pretty big.”

It is not clear who was responsible for the attacks. In the past, Islamic State has claimed responsibility for terror attacks in the world's most populous Muslim country.
