Four of the men involved in the attack on the Riau Police headquarters in Pekanbaru on Wednesday had previously tried to help terror detainees who were rioting at the Mobile Brigade headquarters (Mako Brimob) last week, police said.

"Four masked men rushed out of the auto and attacked the officers using swords", national police spokesman Setyo Wasisto told reporters in Jakarta.

Four men were shot and killed as they staged an attack on a police headquarters that left one officer dead and two wounded.

One of the dead men had a suspected bomb strapped to his body, the report said.

The attack follows a prison riot in Jakarta, suicide bombings in three churches in Surabaya city, the provincial capital of East Java.

"Then four of the men got out from the auto and attacked police", he added.

Two policemen were injured by the sword attacks and another was killed after being hit by the minivan which was trying to escape from the compound of the headquarters, he added.

Four perpetrators were killed and one more was detained as he attempted to escape.

On Sunday, coordinated suicide bombings at three churches carried out by a family of six claimed 12 lives in Surabaya, the country's second-largest city.

The attacks have put Indonesia on edge as the world's biggest Muslim majority country starts the holy fasting month of Ramadan from Thursday.

On Monday members of another family blew themselves up at a police station in Surabaya, wounding 10.

But, the country now faces a new threat, in part from from IS fighters who have come home after combat in Syria.

It is said to be the deadliest since the 2002 Bali attack.

"They had the same teacher and they regularly met for Koran recital every week", said East Java police chief Machfud Arifin.

It was not clear if Wednesday's attack was linked to the earlier incidents.
