Knesset security stopped an armed man who had a one day pass to participate in a panel scheduled to discuss internal affairs and the environment, the Knesset said in a statement on Sunday.

A pistol loaded with air bullets was discovered among the man's personal items. The man was held by security until being transferred to the police who arrived shortly after.

Though an official complaint was filed against the man, he claimed he had forgotten that he had the pistol in his bag.
