Wilders’ film shows rapper, not Van Gogh’s killer

The photograph accompanying the words of the killer of film-maker Theo van Gogh shown in Geert Wilders’ anti-Koran film is not that of Mohammed Bouyeri but that of Dutch rapper Salah Edin.

Last year Edin won damages after being confused with Bouyeri by newspaper DAG.
The rapper said he could see the humour in the situation. ‘It shows Geert Wilders sees Mohammed B in every Muslim,’ ANP reported him as saying.
