AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders, who is leading polls ahead of March 15 elections, said on Thursday in a post on Twitter that he has cancelled all public appearances after a security leak.

A Dutch secret service agent who was part of the team responsible for protecting Wilders was suspended this week on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal organisation.
