Ahmed Dogan, the long-time leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) escaped unscathed, and it was not immediately clear why the attacker had targeted him at the party congress in Sofia.

Television footage showed the man jumping out of the audience and interrupting a speech by 58-year-old Dogan, who has led the party for almost a quarter of a century.

Security guards were seen beating and kicking the attacker. “Ahmed Dogan is in good health. Everything is under control,” MRF official Ceyhan Ibryamov told journalists.

    • Are you seriously trying to defend that guy? He jumped onstage at a televised conference and pointed a gun (fake or not) at a party leader’s head. He’s lucky he didn’t get shot to pieces right there. And frankly, an act that idiotic deserves a few boots to the face.

      Seriously, what’s your agenda here? Because you just sound like an idiot.
