Reuters reports that a suicide bomber attacked a police station in the Indonesian city of Solo on Tuesday.

The suicide bomber killed himself and wounded a police officer. No other casualties were reported, according to Reuters.  

"He broke into the yard, he was on a motorbike, and detonated himself," national police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar told MetroTV.

Indonesia faced an attack by Daesh militants in January. Militants attacked a Starbucks in Jakarta, the capital, and killed four people.

The country's security and anti-terrorism forces are engaged in an ongoing campaign against Daesh propaganda that targets Indonesian youth
