Russia's foreign ministry has expressed regret after a Dutch diplomat was beaten up in Moscow.

The Dutch foreign ministry summoned Russia's ambassador to explain after the diplomat was attacked in his flat.

The incident comes amid rising tensions between the two countries.

Last week Russia protested about the arrest of one of its diplomats in the Netherlands, and the Dutch have complained about Russia's detention of a Dutch-flagged Greenpeace ship.
