The explosions were followed by a blast of gunfire, according to Jeremy Douglas, who works at the United Nations building on Jl Thamrin, where the chaos was unfolding around 11am local time.

"Serious exchange of gunfire in downtown Jakarta," he tweeted.

Police are telling journalists to stay away from the area. Police were seen positioning snipers at nearby buildings after explosions .

A witness told Fairfax Media a young man carrying a gun opened fire at a police station in front of a McDonald's restaurant in Thamrin St. The witness said he helped the injured policeman but there was "a lot of blood".

Local media website Liputan6 showed an image of a small police kiosk in the middle of Jl Thamrin destroyed, and several bodies on the ground.

A UN employee tweeted live from near the scene as viewed from his office.

Husain, an employee at nearby bank, told Fairfax Media: "First there was explosion in front of Starbucks at Marinah just before 11. Then people panicked tried to avoid Starbucks, people ran away. Went to nearby police station and saw a bomb in front of the police station.

"We're terrified, tried to run away shouting 'bomb, bomb'. This guy suddenly was there and opened fire with pistol. Shot the police man in his stomach. After that shot randomly. Witness tried to save police," Husain said.

Another witness, Oly, said the gun shots stopped before police entered a fast food restaurant.

"On the streets people just abandoned their vehicles. Just like that and ran," Oly said.\A security consultancy said in response to the multiple

Unfortunately you are correct for those who live here in the Philippines. Today's attack in Indonesia was expected and is directly related to several extremist groups from Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines that have recently joined forces to unite under the ISIS umbrella. Mass casualty events in these countries are to be the next step in this newly formed organization becoming a legitimate ISIS organization. It should not be a surprise to anyone when something similar occurs here. It will likely occur sooner rather than later.

And do these groups practice a particular religion?

Terrorist attacks are not new to Philippines they happen quite often.     The most dramatic were the Manila coordinated LRT train bombs   that went off on Rizal day in 2000 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rizal_Day_bombings ..and the sinking of the SuperFerry in 2004https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_SuperFerry_14_bombing   2 years ago the  CDO bombing  in the mall 

 6 dead, 46 hurt in bombing in Limketkai mall in Cagayan de ...      and many more not so dramatic to list.

Yes, they are quite common and I am familiar with them. The difference now is that several extremist groups have recently formed an alliance and plan on forming a caliphate in Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines). Unlike attacks in the past where you had small terrorist groups claiming responsibility, in the future they will be carried out by a much larger and better trained organization operating under and pledging allegiance to the ISIS movement. The two most notorious groups making up this new organization are the Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah. This new alliance, which is now called the Islamic State of the Philippines, is under the leadership of Isnilon Hapilon and is supposedly comprised of four battalions. There was a video released recently which I posted a link to in the "ISIS in the Philippines" thread a few days ago where this group stated that their plan is to establish their own province in Mindanao which would become a training camp and staging area for attacks throughout southeast Asia. Today's attack may or may not be related to this group, but even if it is not, there will likely be more incidents like this occurring throughout southeast Asia, including the Philippines, in the near future.

Authorities calling often not to take part in mass gatherings.

 

We have Sinulog Festival here in Cebu, hoping there are no incidents as many foreigners will go watch regardless what many think about viewing the event.
