Van Gogh's Killer an "Islamist Extremsit" - Reuters

Really? I thought he advocated a new, more rigorous form of film criticism?

A 26-year-old with dual Dutch and Moroccan nationality was arrested for the killing of Van Gogh, a distant relative of the painter Vincent van Gogh.

The ministers said the arrested man had already come to the attention of the AIVD national security service, but was not among about 150 suspected Islamic extremists which the service is monitoring.

But don't worry, the police aren't passive in Holland.

Police arrested some 35 people in the Hague Tuesday night for taunting bystanders with anti-immigrant slogans.
