Man Used Fake Gun to Invade Dutch TV Studio

A man wielding a fake gun was arrested Thursday after he got past security and into the studios of Dutch national TV, where he demanded air time before being arrested, the network said. The 19-year-old, claiming to be part of a team of hackers, alleged that radioactive explosives were placed around the city and would be detonated if he wasn't allowed to go on the air.
