Indonesian police said on Sunday they had arrested six terror suspects during a police patrol on Indonesia's Sumatra island.

The group tried to flee when police stopped their car in the North Sumatra capital of Medan, provincial police chief Oegroseno told reporters.

"We've arrested six people suspected to be terrorists. One of them had a gunshot wound on his hand," he added.

"Two managed to run away and we're still hunting for them," he said.

Oegroseno declined to say if those arrested, all Indonesians, were connected to a group detained in February after a major anti-terror raid on an extremist training facility in a remote region of Aceh province.

"We're still investigating," he added.

During the Aceh Besar raid police found rifles, Malaysian military uniforms and propaganda material including videos of the 2002 bombings on the Indonesian resort island of Bali which killed more than 200 people.
