Deadly Trail of Terror Grips Indonesia Ahead of Ramadan

SURABAYA, Indonesia—A militant attack on a police post extended a deadly wave of Islamic State-linked terrorist strikes in Indonesia on the eve of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, after police uncovered a cache of pipe bombs and bomb-making equipment in the country’s second-largest city.

Police have tied the onslaught to a terrorist cell that two years ago was responsible for the first Islamic State-linked attack in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation.
