Parliamentary leaders threatened

The heads of the Christian Democrats (CDA), the Liberal Democrats (D66) and Green Left parliamentary factions have been threatened.  Jesse Klaver (Green Left) registered a complaint with the police, followed by Alexander Pechtold of D66.  Very few details have been published.  VVD faction leader Halbe Zijlstra announced prior to these threats that he had received a letter with a bullet enclosed.  Geert Wilders, leader of the PVV Freedom Party has had bodyguard protection for many years.  Earlier this week, an open letter was published signed by the leaders of most parliamentary factions, requesting more tolerance for each other.
