Thierry #Baudet is zojuist aangevallen met een fles/glas in Groningen. Hij is nu op weg naar het UMCG. Dit is het resultaat van de doorlopende demonisering door de media en van diverse politici. #StemFVD #STEMZEWEG pic.twitter.com/wkCCGYE0KA

Thierry Baudet, leader of the far-right party Forum voor Democratie, has been taken to hospital in Groningen after he was hit on the head several times by someone wielding a bottle.
It is the second physical attack on Baudet within a month.
The incident happened in a busy city centre bar. Camera footage shows Baudet smiling for photos and then someone hitting him three times. A security guard quickly ushers Baudet away while two others appear to detain his attacker.
The Fvd said later on social media that “it appears as if everything will be okay”. Party leaders have been quick to condemn the attack, which has taken place just two days before the general election.
