New explosion in Jakarta not a bomb, but burst tyre - police

JAKARTA (Reuters) - An explosion heard in central Jakarta near the area of a militant attack earlier on Thursday was believed to be a tyre bursting and not another bomb, police said on Thursday.

"There was the sound of an explosion, suspected to be from a truck tyre. But we don't want to underestimate anything. We want to keep things secure," police spokesman Mohammad Iqbal told reporters.
