Islamic extremists in Indonesia, including a family of suicide bombers that targeted three churches, launched multiple attacks beginning Mother's Day that reportedly killed at least 25 people.

The group is believed to have included other members besides the three families. Four officers and six civilians were wounded in the attack, East Java police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said.

Jemaah Islamiyah, the al-Qaida affiliated network responsible for the Bali attacks, was obliterated by a sustained crackdown on militants by Indonesia's counterterrorism police with USA and Australian support.

Police said they uncovered the link between the three families through interviews with the surviving children of the Sidoarjo family.

"They were not home-schooled", Arifin said in response to a question from journalists about their education. "If three families can be involved in two days' worth of terrorist attacks in Surabaya, surely there are more ready to act".

A number of suspects have been rounded up since Monday not only in the city but also in other areas in the province.

Struck and destroyed were the Santa Maria Roman Catholic Church, the Christian Church of Diponegoro and Pantekosta Church. That attack was carried out by two teenagers, ages 16 and 18, the sons of Oepriarto.

"We are checking whether the bomb exploded incidentally or someone detonated it", the spokesperson was quoted as saying. I saw some bodies torn apart.
