Two militants on a motorcycle have blown themselves up at a police headquarters in Indonesia’s city of Surabaya.

“That’s where the explosion happened,” he added.

Ambulances and the bomb squad descended on the chaotic scene with the CCTV images showed the mangled wreckage of a motorbike at the security gate at the headquarters in the heart of the city.
