Anders Fogh Rasmussen was unhurt, but postponed the press briefing in Copenhagen.

The protester - overpowered by parliament security - shouted "You've got blood on your hands," as he was taken away.

Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller was also hit by splashes of paint in the incident inside the parliament building.

The Danish government is expected to contribute a warship and submarine in a war against Iraq.

It is unclear how the protester, who wasn't identified, managed to get inside the building, or what charges he could face.
