"We stand ready to step up cooperation with the Indonesian side and other members of the global community to jointly counter terrorist threats and challenges and uphold peace and tranquility of the region and the world", he said.

Christians are calling for prayer after several churches were attacked in Indonesia - with a single family suspected of carrying out the bombings.

Following the attacks, police uncovered bombs at other churches and on Monday another family group of suicide bombers targeted a police station.

The content of the films included footage from Syria and Iraq, as well as Isis attacks in France, and was meant to encourage those in the group to commit terrorist attacks, he said.

THE Department of Foreign Affairs says it "continues to receive information" terrorists are planning fresh attacks in Indonesia and has warned Australians to take particular care in the country over the next few weeks.

Police in Sidoarjo, near Surabaya, recovered pipe bombs at an apartment where a blast on Sunday killed three members of a family alleged to have been making bombs.

Co-ordinated suicide bombings at three churches were carried out Sunday by a family of six that included girls aged eight and 12.

In all, 26 people - including 13 militants and their children - died since Sunday.


The use of children in the attacks has been particularly horrifying to people.

It claimed responsibility for 11 attacks between 2000 and 2010, including the deadly 2002 Bali bombings that left more than 200 people dead and hundreds injured, many of them tourists.

Security remained tight around police buildings Tuesday in Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city.

Indonesia's latest wave of terrorist bombings, the worst since 2009, have killed at least 14 people.

Terrorist in Indonesia made police their main target after a number of their leaders and fellow terrorist fighters were arrested or killed by special anti terrorist police squad.

Authorities said they received a report about WF's comment and then conducted an investigation leading to her arrest in the Banda Raya subdistrict of Banda Aceh on Monday night.

Karnavian said the father drove a bomb-laden auto into the city's Pentecostal church. The family's 12-year-old son reportedly took two younger sisters to the Bhayangkara Police Hospital. Based on their remains, Karnavian said the mother and daughters were all wearing explosives around their waists.
