Islamic State group backers have circulated a claim of responsibility for the Indonesian suicide attacks resembling the extremist group's previous messages.The claim was shared on Twitter late Thursday. The U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group said it also circulated among pro-Islamic State groups on the message app Telegram.The message said four attackers carried out the assault in Jakarta and had planted several bombs with timers. It said they also wore suicide belts and carried light weaponry.The statement could not be independently verified by The Associated Press, though it resembled previous claims made by the group, which controls territory in both Iraq and Syria.Indonesian police said five — not four — attackers and two other people were killed in explosions and gunfire Thursday in downtown Jakarta.
