JAKARTA, Indonesia (AA) - Indonesia's anti-graft agency on Wednesday arrested the marine affairs and fisheries minister.

Nurul Ghufron, deputy chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), confirmed that Edhy Prabowo was arrested at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

"It is true that the KPK arrested [him], regarding the exports of lobster seed, this morning at 1.23 a.m. [1823GMT Tuesday] at Soekarno-Hatta Airport," Ghufron told reporters.
