JAKARTA, Indonesia – A would-be suicide bomber attacked a Catholic priest after his explosives failed to detonate during Sunday Mass at a packed church in western Indonesia, police said.

The attack took place at the Roman Catholic St. Joseph Church in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra province. City police spokeswoman Rina Sari Ginting described the failed attack as “terrorism” in a statement to Reuters.

The assailant was sitting with other worshippers when he left a bench and ran toward the priest at the altar, but the bomb in his backpack did not go off, said national police spokesman Maj. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar.

“There was a small explosion like fireworks and he also took out a knife as he ran toward the priest,” witness Timbas Ginting told Reuters.

The man kept running toward the priest who was giving a sermon with a burning backpack, as the shocked congregation chased and captured him.

    Wait for it folks it is on it’s way as a daily event in America. Your O just brought in thousands of more Syrians spitting in the eye and giving the middle finger salute again to a Gutless Congress and the American people.

    Look at Calais, this is all over Europe. Right now these refugees in our country are paid, housed with your tax dollars but if H gets in, Socialism takes over, most of us who can are leaving and then who going to pay for the free stuff and refugees and illegals?
