Several masked men attacked the Riau Police headquarters at around 9 a.m. on Wednesday with sharp weapons and firearms, killing one police officer and injuring another.

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

"Four of them got out of the auto and tried to fight a group of police with samurai swords", Nandan, who uses only one name, said in a live interview with local television station TV One.

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

Suddenly the militants exited the vehicle and immediately stage strikes with swords against policemen, provincial police spokesman Sunarto said.

Tourists and Visitors should think twice before traveling to Indonesia, especially Bali as a wave of terror attacks have swept the country.

The police earlier disclosed that 8 militants with a white minivan launched the attacks.

A day later, a family of five carried out a suicide bombing attack on a police headquarters in Surabaya that left 10 people wounded, including four policemen and six civilians. All three incidents involved the children of the three families, who knew each other and studied the Quran together, police said Tuesday. Two police officers and one local journalist were also injured in the attack.

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

Last year, a suicide bombing at a bus station in Jakarta killed three police officers.
