The National Police have called on the public not to share graphic pictures and videos of the deadly Surabaya church bombings that occurred on Sunday morning to prevent fear from spreading.
“Please stop [sharing] photos over social networks. We should not fall into the trap set by the terrorists who want to spread fear among us,” National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Muhammad Iqbal said, as quoted by KompasTV.
“Show that we are not afraid,” he asserted.
