Indonesian police shot dead three men on Wednesday after one attacked them with a samurai sword, wounding two officers, at Riau police headquarters in Pekanbaru, Sumatra, an internal police report said. They are now pursuing a militant who had escaped.

Television images showed what was reportedly the bodies of four suspects lying on the ground. A suicide bombing was also reported at the city's police headquarters on Monday when bike borne attackers blew themselves up at the check point to the precinct.

Riau Provincial Police Spokesperson AKBP Sunarto said two police officers were injured.

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.
