Van Gogh killer has no regrets

Six years after murdering film maker Theo van Gogh, his killer Mohammed Bouyeri has no regrets about his action, the AD reports on Friday.

The paper has got hold of a letter written by Bouyeri to a Muslim group which turned up in Belgium.
In the letter Bouyeri writes that he has ‘no regrets’ about the choices he has made and the road he has travelled, the paper says. ‘Not one second in all these years.’
Bouyeri is serving a life sentence for the killing.
The Dutch security service AIVD told the paper the letter is in line with other letters sent by him.
