An explosion hit a Catholic church  during Palm Sunday celebrations, leaving at least 14 injured.

In a press conference, national police spokesperson Argo Yuwono said the suspected suicide bombing occurred outside the Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral in Makassar city, Sulawesi island, at about 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, just after mass had ended.

The new blast follows a series of attacks on churches in 2018, which killed more than a dozen people and prompted President Joko Widodo to call for tougher anti-terror legislation. After its independence in 1945, Indonesia, which has the world’s largest Muslim community, has fought extremism.

 

Two people on a motorcycle attempted to enter the churchyard but were stopped by security when the explosion occurred, according to initial reports on the latest attack, Yuwono said.

  1. I have realized that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in each and every real estate transaction, a percentage is paid. In the long run, FSBO sellers tend not to “save” the payment. Rather, they fight to earn the commission simply by doing a strong agent’s job. In accomplishing this, they invest their money plus time to execute, as best they are able to, the duties of an agent. Those responsibilities include revealing the home by way of marketing, presenting the home to all buyers, developing a sense of buyer emergency in order to make prompt an offer, preparing home inspections, handling qualification checks with the bank, supervising fixes, and facilitating the closing of the deal.
