Police Arrest “Assassin” Out to Kill Geert Wilders Ahead of ‘Draw Muhammed’ Event


Dutch MP and anti-Islamization figurehead Geert Wilders flirted with grave danger after an alleged assassination attempt was thwarted and a bounty was placed on his head, reports indicate.

A man believed to be Pakistani was arrested this week after posting a video to Facebook announcing his arrival in The Hague with the apparent intention of killing Wilders, according to authorities.

Wilders tweeted that Dutch counterterrorism officials notified him regarding the plot and even attached an article from media outlet NOS describing the matter in detail.
