Indonesian police announced Saturday they had arrested a man they believe financed the deadly Jakarta attacks, alleging the suspect received the funds from ISIS.National police chief Badrodin Haiti said 12 suspects had been detained in nationwide raids since Thursday's attacks, including one accused of bankrolling the suicide bombings and shootings that left seven dead. The attack has been claimed by ISIS, which has ruthlessly carved out a self-proclaimed caliphate in Syria and Iraq, and Indonesian police have more specifically blamed a Southeast Asian affiliate of the group known as Katibah Nusantara.Amid the raids more details have emerged about the brazen assault, with police confirming a suicide bomber struck a Starbucks cafe and officially releasing the identities of the attackers and their victims.
