On Saturday, a man has attacked the leader of Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party at a national conference in Sofia.

Ahmed Dohgan was addressing delegates, when the attacker jumped on stage and pointed at him with a gas pistol -- a weapon most often used for target practice.

Witnesses say the attacker attempted to shoot the party leader, but the gas pistol apparently misfired.

Security guards wrestled the man to the ground, and police arrested him.

He was also reportedly carrying two knives.

IT WASN'T A GUN... it was a gas pistol that fired tear gas.

Would not have killed anyone (just made them cry.)

Target practice with a tear gas gun???

Do you have editors here that even read the news?

Geesh they just beat the shit out of him, then handcuff him, lol
