Two policemen were injured in the sword attacks and another was killed after being hit by the minivan which was trying to escape the compound of the headquarters, he added.

While the police managed to shoot four of the attackers, the remaining five escaped said the police chief of Riau.

A van carrying four men drove up to the front gate of the outpost of the city of Riau, and one of the men jumped out of the vehicle and began attacking police with a samurai sword.

The attack is the latest in a spate of attacks in the country.

This was the second attack on a police premise in the country since Monday.

This week's bloody violence is putting pressure on lawmakers to pass a stalled security law that would give police more power to take pre-emptive action against people suspected of planning terror attacks.

One of the dead men had a suspected bomb strapped to his body, the report said.

Three of the men were shot and killed by police.

But on Sunday, a family of six - including girls aged nine and 12 - staged suicide bombings of three churches during morning services in Surabaya, killing 13. All three incidents involved the children of the three families, who knew each other and studied the Quran together, police said Tuesday.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for both attacks. Two police officers and one local journalist were also injured in the attack.
