THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The leader of a far-right Dutch populist party has been assaulted at an event two days before the Netherlands holds a general election. Thierry Baudet, leader of Forum for Democracy, was taken to a hospital on Monday. His party reported the attack on social media and said “it looks like everything will all be alright.” Video on social media showed Baudet in a bar when his attacker lunged at him and hit him with what appeared to be a bottle. A police spokesman says a person has been arrested on suspicion of involvement.
