Gunman Arrested after Demanding Air Time at Dutch TV Station [Video]

A gunman was arrested Thursday after he got past security and into the studios of Dutch national TV, where he demanded air time to make a statement before being arrested, the network said.

The evening newscast Journaal was canceled and the message “One moment please” aired for more than a half-hour as Nederlandse Omroep Stichting, or NOS, the Netherlands’ public broadcaster, was evacuated about 8 p.m. (2 p.m. ET), the network said. A NOS employee directed the man to an unused studio at the network’s Mediapark facilities in the city of Hilversum, southeast of Amsterdam, where he dropped his weapon and surrendered to police. There were no reports of injuries.

NOS broadcast video and tweeted a photo of a well-dressed man in a black jacket and glasses and carrying what appeared to be a handgun in the network’s news studios:

In the video released by NOS, the man says: “The things that are going to be said — those are very large world affairs. We were hired by the security service.”
