Security forces opened fire on the attackers, said Pamrin, who goes by a single name. Six unidentified corpses were later brought to the town's main hospital, witnesses said.

Toward dawn, a bomb exploded outside a church in the town, witnesses said. There were no reports of major damage or injuries. In July, at least 28 people were killed in sectarian fighting in villages surrounding Poso, about 1,000 miles northeast of Jakarta. In May last year, more than 400 people were killed in the region. Around 200 members of the Laskar Jihad have recently arrived on the island from neighboring Maluku province, where the group is accused of stoking a sectarian conflict that has left around 9,000 dead during the past three years.
