Bulgaria: Attacker says aim was to scare, not kill

A man who pointed a gas pistol at a Bulgarian politician says his aim was to scare him rather than kill him.
A court on Tuesday ruled that Oktay Enimehmedov should remain detained because he poses a flight risk but also for his own safety.
The 25-year-old assailant faces up to six years in prison for pointing the gun at Ahmed Dogan, the head of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms party, as he was delivering a speech in the capital on Saturday.
Enimehmedov's gun apparently misfired, while other delegates wrestled him to the ground, punching, kicking and stomping on him. Prosecutors said Monday they are investigating the beating, but have not yet decided if someone will be charged.
