Far right politician Geert Wilders has reported 10 threatening Tweets to the police and promised to report more next week.

He tweeted on Wednesday that on his way to parliament this morning, he stopped by the police and reported a series of social media threats.

‘The rest weren’t yet ready and we will do them next week,’ he added.

Wilders, whose PVV party came second in the last general election, has lived under 24-hour armed police protection since 2004 due to death threats.
