Belgian police detain man near EU Parliament, find gun and chainsaw

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Brussels police on Monday detained a Slovakian man dressed in camouflage gear near the European Parliament and found a gun and a chainsaw in his car, triggering a security scare which caused several offices to be evacuated.

The man told police officers that he wanted to meet the European president, prosecutors said.
