Indonesian policeman fatally shot in downtown Jakarta
JAKARTA (AP) - Two men riding a motorcycle have fatally shot a police officer in front of Indonesia's anti-graft commission.
National Police spokesman Major-General Ronny Frengky Sompie says the police are investigating the motive for the attack on Tuesday night in downtown Jakarta.
The victim, identified only as Mr Sukardi, a detective who was also riding a motorbike, died instantly.
It was the third attack on the police in and near the capital since August. Two officers were killed on Aug 16, nine days after another was fatally shot. Both were in Tangerang Selatan on Jakarta's western outskirts. The police identified two attackers as suspected terrorists.
