Detainees and convicts from terrorism cases jailed in the Salemba Detention Facility of the National Police's Mobile Brigade Command Headquarters in Kelapa Dua, Depok, West Java, rioted and attacked police guards and members of the Special Counter-Terrorism Unit on Tuesday last week. After taking possession of firearms, rifles, and explosives which they took from officers and the evidence room, they held six members of the Special Counter-Terrorism Unit hostage and took over the facility for 36 hours. The rioting inmates, numbering over a hundred, surrendered after being surrounded by thousands of police. Six people died during the tension-filled incident: five police officers who had been taken hostage, and one inmate.
Most of the detainees and terrorist convicts at Jakarta's Mobile Brigade Headquarters are affiliated with the Jamaah Ansharut Daulah group. They obey the orders of Aman Abdurrahman.
Aman Abdurrahman is suspected of ordering the execution of terrorist attacks in Indonesia while still behind bars. His network was able to take over the detention facility at the Mobile Brigade Headquarters.
A day after Indonesian National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian flew to Jordan, a riot broke out at the Detention Facility of the National Police's Mobile Brigade Command Headquarters in Kelapa Dua, Depok, West Java.
