Indonesian Security Minister wounded in public stabbing
Police say a knife-wielding man has injured Indonesia's Security Minister , a local police chief and another two people in a western province.
Mr Prasetyo said the man who attacked the security official during a visit in Banten province may have been exposed to the Islamic State group.
Mr Prasetyo also said the attacker injured a police chief who was about to greet Wiranto as the Minister alighted from a car, along with a villager.
Wiranto, 72, has served as Chief Security Minister in President Joko Widodo's Cabinet since 2016.
Wiranto was indicted by a UN panel over the bloodshed surrounding East Timor's 1999 independence vote, when about 1,000 people were killed. Wiranto denied any wrongdoing in East Timor.Read more: ABC News
