Massive explosion, gunfire heard in Indonesian capital of Jakarta

A massive explosion has rocked downtown Jakarta in front of a popular shopping mall, and an Associated Press reporter saw at least one dead body.

Gunshots were heard after the midmorning explosion Thursday in front of the Sarinah shopping mall in an area that also has many luxury hotels, embassies and offices.

It was not clear who was shooting but there was a massive police presence, which prevented reporters from going near the scene.

One story said it was outside of the UN building; this may be an ongoing situation as of right now.

I hope Indonesia is not the new country ISIS will be targeting.

ISIS claimed responsibility.

It seems that every time Obama says that it is under control, something tragic happens in the next few days because of them. This guy simply isn’t fit to be commander-in-chief.
