Indonesian police arrested four people Thursday, foiling a planned terrorist attack on the Myanmar embassy in Jakarta.

National police spokesman Brigadier General Boy Rafli said the suspects, three men and one woman, were armed with five homemade bombs and planned to attack the building as revenge for the treatment of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, ABC News Australia reports.

According to ABC, Indonesia’s anti-terrorism squad later raided a bomb workshop in South Jakarta, arresting another man and woman.

Police have indicated the group may be part of a bigger network, ABC reports.
