In Jakarta, Indonesia, Starbucks has closed all 50 of their establishments after a series of coordinated attacks on Thursday [January 14, 2016] claimed to be the work of ISIS. The attacks led to at least two dead in the Indonesian capital.
The attackers first struck a police traffic post on a busy street and then detonated explosives in what appeared to be a suicide attack outside of a Starbucks coffee shop nearby, according to Fortune.
One of the customers located within the coffee shop was injured, but the company stated all of their employees are safe. That specific Starbucks is to remain closed indefinitely while the other Starbucks locations in Jakarta will remain closed until Friday. There are about 200 locations in that country.
“We are deeply saddened by the senseless act that has taken place in Jakarta; our hearts are with the people of Indonesia,” Starbucks said in a statement.
