Suicide Bomber Gets Nasty Surprise After Running Into A Church

An 18-year-old Ivan Armadi Hasugian attempted to detonate a homemade backpack bomb inside St. Joseph Church in Sumatra when it caught fire and wouldn’t go off. In addition to failing his suicide bomb attempt, he also failed at killing the church’s priest.

Indonesian church congregants weren’t about to let that happen and saved their priest from being slaughtered by the ISIS terrorist, according to MailOnline,

“Somebody tried to kill the priest by pretending to attend the church service and at that time tried to explode something, like a firecracker, but the firecracker didn’t explode, it only fumed,” Chief Detective Nur Fallah told MailOnline.

After his bomb and failed, Hasugian whipped out an axe from his bag and went after the church’s 60-year-old priest Albert Pandiangan. Though he was able to cut the priest’s arm, congregants attacked Hasugian and stopped him from seriously injuring and murdering their priest.

“He sat in the same row as I did… I saw him fiddling with something in his jacket, and then I heard a small explosion and he immediately ran to the podium,” eyewitness Markus Harianto Manullan said.

Hasugian was covered in blood at the time of his arrest. Police found his ID card and a hand-drawn picture of the ISIS flag in his possession. He told police that he was not working alone.
