Indonesia police kill suspected bomb plotters

At least four suspected fighters killed after a standoff in Central Java.

    Indonesia's anti-terrorism police have shot dead four suspected fighters and arrested two others after an all-night standoff at a village hideout in Central Java.

    Officials said they were investigating whether the group was connected to an alleged plot to bomb the Myanmar embassy in the country.

    The men were killed in a raid on Thursday at a house in the town of Kebume after authorities failed to persuade them to surrender during a 13-hour standoff.
