JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia's president has ordered a thorough investigation of the network behind two suicide bombings that targeted police in the capital and killed three police officers.

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo offered deep condolences for the victims and their families Thursday. The bombings on Wednesday night also injured five other police officers and five civilians. The two bombers were killed.

Jokowi said he has ordered police to "thoroughly investigate the networks of the perpetrators and hunt them to the roots because the attack was already outrageous."

He spoke from his hometown of Solo in Central Java province.

Indonesia has faced an emerging threat in recent years from Islamic State group sympathizers who have launched attacks targeting government authorities, mainly police and anti-terrorism forces.
