Federal Police Comissioner Mick Keeley says a second group of suicide bombers is believed to be at large in the Indonesian capital Jakarta, and may be poised to carry out another terrorist attack.
The warning comes in the wake of Thursday's blast at the Australian embassy compound, which killed nine people and left more than 150 injured.
Comissioner Keeley said the new warning is based on advise from the intelligence community.
'There is intelligence suggesting that there is a second group in the area,' he said.
'Intelligence comes through all the time about threats and possible threats and there is further intelligence in the last 24 to 48 hours of a second group.'
Comissioner Keeley says authorites are treating the intelligence reports seriously.
He says the suspected second terror cell may have been recruited by Jemaah Islamiah bomb maker, Azahari Husin.
The Malaysian born extremist has already been identified as the likely mastermind of Thursday's suicide bombing at the Australian embassy, and is wanted in connection with the 2002 Bali bombings.
