There are no Armenians among the victims of the terrorist acts in Jakarta, the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports, quoting the Armenian Embassy in Indonesia.

A series of bomb blasts has rocked the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, with gun battles on the streets.

The blasts were centered around Thamrin Street, a major shopping and business district close to foreign embassies and the United Nations offices.

Police say the situation is now under control, with five suspected attackers among at least seven people killed.

It is not yet clear which group was behind the assault, which President Joko Widodo called an “act of terror.”
