(CNN) — Authorities found weapons, explosives and jihadist materials at an Islamic school in central Indonesia after a three-day standoff, police said Thursday.
Police descended on the Umar bin Khatab Islamic boarding School, in Bima, West Nusa Tenggara province, on Monday after an explosion there killed one person.
Students at the school, armed with machetes and arrows, blocked police officers who had gone there to investigate the explosion. The standoff ended Wednesday night when police opened fire and entered the school.

One person was injured by a stray bullet, according Maj. Gen. Anton Bachrul Alam with the National Police.
Seven people have been detained. The school’s owner escaped, he said.
After searching the location, police found nine Molotov bombs, explosive materials, several jihadist videos, arrows and other homemade weapons, Alam said.
Two assembled bombs were also found under a bridge near the school but a police bomb squad was able to defuse them, he said.
The man who died in Monday’s explosion was a member of the Jemaah Islamiyah terror network and trained as bombmaker in the Southern Philippines, according to local media reports. Police suspect he was showing students how to assemble a bomb that was going to be used in an attack on the police.

Police arrest head of Islamic school
POLICE say they have arrested the headmaster of an Islamic boarding school where a man died earlier this week, reportedly while trying to teach students how to make homemade bombs.
National Police spokesman Brig Gen Ketut Untung Yoga said yesterday that authorities believe the school – set up nearly a decade ago in Sumba island town of Bima – was actually a militant training camp.
He says explosives, dozens of machetes, air riffles, molotov cocktails and jihadi books and videos were found in the building.
Yoga said Abrori Ali, the headmaster, fled the scene after the explosion but was arrested on Friday in his parents’ house about 30km away.
Seven other people are in police custody for questioning.
