The security staff at the European Parliament in Brussels got a bit of a shock yesterday when a 32-yr old Slovak man dressed in camouflage clothing, causing them to evacuate the building after they discovered his car was parked nearby.
The man entered the European Parliament building and demanded to speak to the head of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz. The police soon arrested him, then evacuated the administrative building and visitors’ centre of the EP in the fear that his car could be rigged with a bomb. The police eventually found a firearm and a chainsaw in his car.
The man is now being charged with illegal possession of a firearm and terrorism charges.
