A suicide bomber attacked a packed Indonesian church Sunday in the city of Solo, wounding at least 27, Fox News reports. It is the latest in a series of attacks on minority religious groups in the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation. The bomber, who was inside the church when he got up and detonated the bomb on his way out, was part of a terrorist network based in Cirebon, 185 miles east of Jakarta. Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said he had called for a thorough investigation to find out more about the group, including who funded and led it. "On behalf of the country and my government, I strongly condemn terrorist acts as an extraordinary evil," he said.
