Fourteen people were wounded Sunday when two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside a Catholic church in the Indonesian city of Makassar.

The attack at Sacred Heart Cathedral came on Palm Sunday, the first day of the Easter Holy Week. According to the police, the congregation had been inside the church on the island of Sulawesi at the time of the explosion.

The bombers struck just as the mass was ending. Local police had previously said the bombers had acted alone.

National police spokesman Argo Yuwono said authorities were looking into which radical networks the bombers came from.

They were also probing whether the attack was linked to recent arrests of suspected militants.
