Fears are growing an Islamic State stronghold is emerging in Indonesia after 63 terror groups in the region pledged allegiance to the ISIS leader.

Indonesian Defence Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu has warned lives could be lost unless action is not taken..
Mr Ryacudu is calling for the sharing of intelligence to be improved in order to protect the lives of civilians, The Australian reported. 

Mr Ryamizard scheduled a meeting with Australian Defence minister Christopher Pyne in Jakarta on Thursday.

He urged Australia to support Asia's Five Eyes counter-intelligence initiative, called Our Eyes.
Mr Ryamizard spoke to the public in Singapore last week, and states Our Eyes has the potential to 'grow and surpass' the Five Eyes intelligence initiative.
He claimed the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan had agreed to join as regional partners, although it is unconfirmed whether there is a formal agreement.
