A family of six including two young daughters staged suicide bombings at the three Indonesian churches during Sunday services, killing at least 13 people and at least 40 others in attacks claimed by the Islamic State group, Agence France-Presse reported.
The family's two teenaged sons then used a motorcycle to carry out their attack, while the mother and her two daughters used backpacks and bags to hide their bombs.
The police believe that JAD is group that is following attack, an organization that is estimated to have attracted hundreds of supporters of Islamic State in Indonesia.
The police later disabled three bombs at the home of the suspects, officials in Surabaya said.

National police chief Tito Karnavian said the family had returned to Indonesia from Syria, according to the AP.
A street merchant outside the church said she was blown several meters (yards) by the blast.
IS has claimed responsibility for several recent attacks in Indonesia, a lot of them carried out by its affiliate Jamaah Ansharut Daulah.
President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo visited the scenes of the attacks and described them as "cowardly actions" that were "very barbaric and beyond the limit of humanity".
The U.S. blames JAD for a suicide bombing and gun attack in Jakarta in January 2016 that left four people dead and 25 injured. "One was wearing black trousers and one with a backpack", a merchant known only as Samsia told the AP.
"Suddenly, she hugged a civilian, then [the bomb] exploded", said the eyewitness, who identified himself as Antonius. A large blast was heard hours after the attacks, which Mangera said was a bomb disposal squad dealing with a device.
Jemaah Islamiyah, the network responsible for the Bali attacks, was obliterated by a sustained crackdown on militants by Indonesia's counterterrorism police with US and Australian support.
Forensic proof signifies the bombs have been connected to the attackers' our bodies, Karnavian stated.
The attacks come several days after five Indonesian police officers and an inmate were killed in clashes at a high-security jail on the outskirts of Jakarta.
Christians make up about 10 per cent of Indonesia's population of 260 million, making them the largest religious minority in the country.
