The deadly spate of suicide bombings in the Indonesian city of Surabaya has revealed an even more ugly face to the Islamic State's strategy of jihad.

Its leader, Aman Abdurrahman, was scheduled to appear at a court hearing last week, but it was postponed after a deadly riot broke out at the jail where Aman is being held in Depok, West Java, according to a report in the Jakarta Post.
