THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Police in The Hague are investigating a break-in at a building managed by the Russian embassy, the latest in a string of incidents that is putting a severe strain on the relationship between the Netherlands and one of its major trading partners.

The break-in Thursday comes just days after a senior Dutch diplomat was assaulted in his home in Moscow, an attack that followed the arrest by Hague police of a Russian diplomat.

Police spokeswoman Chantal Marges said Friday no suspects have been arrested. She says the building does not have diplomatic status.

The incidents have cast a shadow over a year of events celebrating Dutch-Russian relations.

Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans said Thursday he has no plans to cancel a visit next month by Dutch King Willem-Alexander to Russia.
