Four men armed with samurai swords and firearms have attacked a police station in Indonesia.

The assault happened on the island of Sumatra, killing one officer and wounding two others

All four men were shot dead by security forces.

Police have blamed Islamist group Jemaah Ansharut Daulah, which is affiliated with Islamic State.

The attack comes just days after eight people were killed at a church in Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city, by a family of suicide bombers.
