He was leaving a vehicle in Banten province when he was stabbed, before officers tackled a man and a woman.

"They were stabbed but are in stable condition and fully conscious", said Banten police chief Tomsi Tohir.

Widodo, who appointed Wiranto to the top security post in 2016, visited him at the hospital. Authorities say there are no other suspects involved in this attack.

"Wiranto was injured at the front part of his body, (and) head of district police Commissioner Adrianto was wounded at the back of his body and (a resident) Aji Fual was also injured", he said.

Wiranto, 72 - who police have said was one of several targets in an earlier failed assassination plot - was rushed by helicopter to the capital where he was treated for two knife wounds in his stomach.

The assault happened after the senior minister attended the inauguration of a university building in Sindanghayu village, Saketi subdistrict, local news media bantennews.co.id is reporting. "He was arrested and the woman fought the police", Madrohim added.

Various leaks have shown that they will have a new design, dual cameras on the back, motion sensing, and other exciting features. The 15 October Made by Google event has been somewhat spoiled by the volume of Pixel 4 leaks, and not much is secret about it.

Indonesia's security minister has been stabbed by a pair of attackers apparently influenced by the Islamic State militant group.

Police said Alamsyah had been "exposed to ISIL radicalism", without elaborating.

"While very serious, this attempt should not be over dramatized".

Many past attacks by Indonesian militants have been against police and other state symbols.

In 2003, Wiranto, then already retired from the military, and seven other former military officials were indicted by a United Nations panel for alleged crimes against humanity for atrocities in East Timor after the region voted for independence from Indonesia in a 1999 referendum.

Wiranto ran unsuccessfully for president in 2004 and for the vice-presidency in 2009.
