A suicide bomber angered by Indonesia's new criminal code that bans sex outside marriage and insulting the president blew himself up at a police station on the main island of Java today, killing one other person and wounding 11 people.
Agus Sujatno, 34, an Islamist militant and convicted bomb-maker who was released from prison last year, entered the police station in the city of Bandung on a motorbike and detonated a bomb as officers were lining up for morning assembly.
Detectives later found 'dozens' of white pieces of paper taped to the attacker's motorbike protesting against the country's controversial new criminal code that was passed on Tuesday.
