Indonesian police say they have evacuated a neighborhood on the outskirts of the capital, Jakarta, after discovering a bomb in a raid on suspected militants.

National Police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar says people living within a 300-meter radius of the rented house that was raided Saturday have been evacuated. Police explosive experts are at the scene.

He said two men and one woman were arrested. The bomb was encased in a rice cooker.

Amir said the three who were arrested are suspected to be part of a militant network linked to a bomb-making lab raided last month in West Java province.
