Earlier reports indicated at least 10 people died, but Head Gen. Tito Karnavian, Indonesia's highest-ranking police official, told reporters seven victims were killed.

National Police Chief Tito Karnavian said the father exploded a auto bomb, two sons ages 16 and 18 used a motorcycle for their attack, and the mother was with her two young daughters for her attack. A new threat has emerged in the past several years, inspired by Islamic State attacks overseas.

Karnavian said Futrianto drove a bomb-laden vehicle into the city's Pentecostal church.

A mother and two daughters blew themselves up at a church, while the father and two sons targeted two others in Indonesia's second city, Surabaya.

Forensic evidence indicates the bombs were attached to the attackers' bodies, Karnavian said.
