Six Dead in Depok Prison Riot
A counterterrorism investigator said in a text message that six officers had been taken hostage by the inmates, and five of them were killed.
Funerals were held on Thursday for the police victims, including one officer who had recently become a father, media said.
One convicted terrorist had also been killed in clashes at the jail in Depok, on the outskirts of the capital Jakarta, national police spokesman Muhammad Iqbal told reporters.
The jail in the Mobile Police Brigade (Brimob) headquarters in Depok houses high-risk terrorism convicts, as well as Jakarta's former governor, Ahok.
Despite the situation, Iqbal asserted that police were in full control of the situation and that negotiations were still being carried out in order to save the captive officer.
Among the facility's prisoners is Aman Abdurrahman, an Islamic radical jailed for orchestrating an attack in Jakarta in 2016 that left eight people dead. However, there seems to exist no link between the failed terrorist attack and the clash between inmates and police at the Depok detention center.
