According to reports from journalists at the scene, who were covering another story right before the attack, a white Toyota Avanza smashed into the outer fence of the police headquarters.

Five men attacked the Riau Police headquarters on Jl.

Two officers were wounded while another was killed after one of the perpetrators tried to escape and crashed into the officer, he said.

Police said they shot dead four of the police station attackers and later arrested another who had fled.

The incident is said to have happened when Riau Police chief inspector General Pol Nandang was going to give the press release of the drug cases disclosure.

A footage showed that a man lying on the ground with a sword next to his body.

A police spokesman in Riau said they had not identified the perpetrators yet or determined their motive.

The church bombing family were in the same religious study group as the Surabaya police station bombers and a third family believed to be linked to the wave of attacks, authorities said.

On Monday, a suicide bomb attack outside a police building, carried out by one family and claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group, killed at least 10 people.

The attack comes as the Southeast Asian nation has been rocked by a series of deadly attacks on churches and a police station, involving multiple suicide bombings carried out by families, including young children.

After some major successes tackling Islamist militancy since 2001, Indonesia has seen a resurgence in recent years, including in January 2016 when four suicide bombers and gunmen attacked a shopping area in the capital, Jakarta.
