In response to queries from Channel NewsAsia, the ministry said a vehicle entered its front gate without proper authorisation.

MFA said the situation was quickly brought under control, and that the safety and security of members of the public and MFA staff were not compromised during the incident.

Police confirmed they received a call at about 2.32pm requesting for assistance.

A woman was subsequently arrested for criminal trespass.
