A sword-wielding attacker wounded four churchgoers in the Indonesian city of Yogyakarta yesterday before being shot and wounded by police who said they could not immediately confirm whether it was a terrorism-related incident.

The attack occurred during the Sunday mass in St. Lidwina Bedhog Trihanggo church of Sleman district, a police official told Xinhua news agency.

A police spokesman said: Four people have been injured in the incident - quite seriously - but we still can not determine the perpetrator's motive.

Police said they were investigating possible motives for the attack by the suspect, believed to be a university student, at a Catholic church service in Yogyakarta.

Congregation member Andhi Cahyo was quoted as saying that soon after the service started, a fellow member whose head was bleeding ran into the church chased by the assailant.

He also destroyed icons of Jesus and the Virgin Mary during the attack, which lasted about 15 minutes before police arrived at the scene.
