Dutch Filmmaker Van Gogh Shot and Stabbed to Death

A filmmaker who received death threats after releasing a film that criticized the treatment of Muslim women was murdered in Amsterdam on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
Theo Van Gogh, the great-grandnephew of painter Vincent van Gogh was shot and stabbed to death on a city street, reports the AP.
His English-language short film “Submission” aired on Dutch television in August, angering the Muslim community in the Netherlands, including Muslim’s women’s groups that say the depiction of women being abused is insensitive.
