A man with a sword allegedly slashed at church-goers as they prayed in Indonesia, injuring five people, CNN reported.

The assault took place during the Sunday mass in Sleman district in the southern Indonesian province of Yogyakarta.

"We can not confirm yet if this was a terror-related incident", said Yogyakarta police spokesman Yuliyanto, who goes by one name like many Indonesians.

Among the four injured in the attack was a police officer who, as witnesses said, tried to subdue the assailant with the help of a priest.

Worshipper Andhi Cahyo said a few minutes after the service started, a congregation member ran in with a bleeding head while he was chased by a young man holding a sharp weapon.




According to the spokesman, the attacker had been shot in the stomach, while the condition of the wounded victims is still unknown. "I was scrambling to save my wife and children", Cahyo said.

He said that when the police arrived, they fired a warning shot but the attacker refused to surrender. Police opened fire on the attacker, who's been hospitalized, it said.

Extremists in Indonesia have mounted a series of attacks against Christians and other minorities. "We can confirm the suspect has been detained and is being treated in hospital".

On Christmas Eve 2000 the al-Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiyah group staged coordinated bombings of churches in Jakarta and eight other cities which killed 18 people and injured many more.
