Party chairman survives grenade attack
by UPI

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia -- Authorities in Indonesia say the chairman of the Aceh Sabululssalam Party escaped injury Monday when a grenade tossed at his house failed to fully detonate.

Alimuddin Jabat and his family were at their home in Indonesia's Aceh Province when the grenade hit, damaging the roof and several lamps, The Jakarta Post reported.

Jabat's son, Mulyadi, chased two attackers who were riding a motorcycle but couldn't keep up with them, said Nurdin Ramli, the party's deputy chairman. "Now the police are combing the area," Ramli said.

Ramli told the Post he believed the attack was intended to intimidate members of the party in the run up to contested elections in April.
