Bulgaria: Assassination attempt caught on film

Police in Bulgaria today 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.

Video from the event in Sofia shows the man climbing the podium where Ahmed Dogan, the leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, was speaking, and pointing the gun at his face.

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