Bulgarian police detain man after he points weapon at party leader

Police in Bulgaria detained a man after he pointed a gun at an ethnic Turkish party leader as he was delivering a speech in the capital. No shots were fired.

The video from the Saturday event in Sofia shows the man climbing the podium where Ahmed Dogan, the leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, was speaking on Saturday, and pointing the gun to his face.

Dogan struck the man before other delegates wrestled the assailant to the ground, and police took him away.
