Indonesian authorities have arrested three men in connection with Thursday’s terror attacks in the capital city Jakarta, in which at least seven people died and more than 20 others were injured.

Local police chief Col. Dwiyono told a television channel that the trio were apprehended early Friday morning at their homes in the Depok area on the outskirts of Jakarta, the Associated Press reported.

The identities of the men and the nature of their involvement in the attacks are not yet known, although Dwiyono said they are suspected militants.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which took place at a popular shopping mall near the city’s main U.N. office in a bustling commercial area. The assailants, five of whom police said were killed, detonated bombs and opened fire on security forces.
