Dutch Parliament sealed off after 'confused person' detained

Police in The Hague say they have detained a man suspected of throwing a bag near the Dutch parliament.

The Parliament was sealed off by military police after the incident late Thursday afternoon.

In a statement on its website, Parliament says the measure was taken as a precaution after a "confused person" was detained near one of the building's entrances.

Police say in a tweet that the man was shot, although it was not immediately clear by whom.
