SOFIA, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Ahmed Dogan, leader of Movement for Rights and Freedoms, Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party, survived on Saturday after being attacked by a man holding a gas gun.

The gunman pointed the gun at Dogan when the leader was delivering a speech at the party's national conference in the National Palace of Culture but was neutralized by delegates before he could shoot.

The interior ministry said later in a press release that the 25-year-old gunman, who also carried two knives, had been arrested. The accident is under investigation, it said.

Dogan, 59, has been leader of the party since its founding in January 1990, and serves as leader of its parliamentary group.
