Six dead after shootout between police and suspected jihadis at tourist hotspot
[EXPRESS.CO.UK] SIX suspected jihadis have been rubbed out by police in Indonesia. The group were killed after a failed drive-by targeting coppers. The incident took place at around 5pm local time (11am GMT) in East Java.

Police front man Frans Barung Mangera said officers had been monitoring a vehicle which had links to snuffies in the area.

He said: "We tried to stop that vehicle, but the vehicle did not stop." Mr Mangera said those in the vehicle then "took out weapons and shot at officers".

The men then fled into a plantation before a shoot-out ensued. The front man said: "By around 5pm we had immobilised all of them."

Police had been monitoring the vehicle in connection after three suspected members of Islamic bully boy group Jemaah Anshorut Daulah were tossed in the clink

They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
