Three families were involved in a string of Islamic State-inspired attacks in a period of less than 24 hours Sunday in the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country, sounding alarms over rising extremism.

A family of six — a husband and wife and their four children — launched three suicide attacks on three separate Christian churches in Surabaya Sunday morning, ending the lives of a dozen people Sunday.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks on the churches.
