THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Police in The Hague detained a man they described as "possibly disturbed" near the Dutch parliament on Thursday after he threw a bag and shouted that it contained explosives.

Parliament buildings were sealed off by military police temporarily while explosives experts checked the bag. They found no explosives, police spokesman Bobby Markus said.

Police initially said that the man from The Hague had been shot and injured, but later said a warning shot that was fired hadn't struck him.

Markus says the 59-year-old man, whose identity was not released, had earlier visited a police station to complain about his welfare payments.
