Arsonists attack two Protestant churches
Unidentified arsonists attacked two Protestant churches in South Sulawesi’s provincial capital Makkasar in the early hours of Sunday morning. No serious damage or injuries were caused.
Attackers targeted Tiatira Malengkeri Church at 3 am where they hit a wall with a molotov cocktail before a more serious attack at Jordan Toraja Church an hour later burned the main signboard and entrance, said police spokesman Endi Sutendi.
Police seized two broken bottles with petrol inside, two axes and burned sandals from the first attack and have questioned witnesses but no suspects have been identified so far, he added.
“Investigators are working on the case and have not found any connection to terrorist networks,” said Sutendi.
