Six policemen killed in Indonesia prison riot

"Five of our colleagues died ... one of our colleagues is still inside and being held hostage", National Police spokesman Muhammad Iqbal said, adding that inmates were suspected to have taken weapons from the officers. But a number of people suffered injuries caused by a riot involving the security forces and the inmates of the terrorism cases in the prison.

The riot erupted in Depok, on Jakarta's southern outskirts, where four days earlier police arrested three militants they say planned to attack the headquarters and other police stations in the same town. A counterterrorism investigator said four police officers were wounded and were being treated at a hospital.

Police officer Iwan Sarjana was reportedly held captive by prison inmates and the police were allegedly in negotiations to defuse the situation. "We will present the details of the matter later when we can handle it", he said.

The clash was triggered by the objection of the inmates to the prison's authorities making checks on food being brought to them, the spokesman said.

It claimed that 10 counter-terrorism counter officers have been killed.

"There are about 30 to 40 hardliners and inmates from JAD who provoked other inmates", Wasisto said.

The world's most populous Muslim nation Indonesia has carried a lot of crackdown on militants since Bali bombing in 2002.

A news agency run by Islamic state group published a report stating that prisoners who were detained in the centre were from their group.

Even as the riot was unfolding, the Islamic State's media arm uploaded videos and photos that they claimed were from inside the detention center, showing executed hostages and detainees brandishing weapons, raising the black flag of the Islamic State and pledging allegiance to the group's leader.
