Army trucks thundered through Indonesia's capital Friday as authorities boosted security at possible terror targets and probed the suspected ISIS cell blamed for Jakarta's deadly militant attacks.Four of the five men killed in suicide and gun assaults Thursday had been identified, and a subsequent search of one of their homes found ISIS-related evidence, including the group's flag, National police spokesman Anton Charliyan said. Indonesia's worst terror incident in seven years killed five attackers, a Canadian and an Indonesian man, according to police.Police have singled out Indonesian extremist Bahrum Naim as behind the assault.Two men on a motorbike also destroyed a police post in a suicide bomb attack that left four officers severely injured.Indonesia suffered several large bomb attacks by Islamic radicals between 2000 and 2009, but a subsequent security crackdown weakened the most dangerous networks, and there had been no major attacks since 2009 .
