Several shots have been fired at Saudi Arabia’s embassy in The Hague.

Nobody was injured in the attack and Dutch police have secured the street outside the embassy since the incident at 6am on Thursday.

Bullet holes could be seen across the front windows of the building and officers discovered spent rounds on the ground outside.

The motive for the shooting is unclear, and police have appealed for witnesses.

It comes just hours after a bomb attack on Western diplomats attending a Remembrance Day service in the Saudi capital of Jeddah which injured four, including one Briton.
