Van Gogh Report

Racial tensions following the murder of Theo van Gogh have spread from Holland to Belgium. The BBC reports that a suspect has been arrested in Antwerp for making death threats against senator cum author Mimount Bousakla, a Belgian citizen of Moroccan origin.

Ms Bousakla, 32, whose parents are Moroccan, came to prominence after writing a book about her cross-cultural upbringing called Couscous with Belgian Fries.
She has received sporadic death threats ever since, but this time they were taken so seriously that she went into hiding and was given round-the-clock police protection.
