AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) Dutch police have arrested eight suspected Islamic radicals as part of the investigation into the brutal slaying of outspoken filmmaker Theo van Gogh, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The suspects were detained in the 24 hours following Van Gogh’s killing while he bicycled on an Amsterdam street, prosecution spokeswoman Dop Kruimel said.

Six of the detainees are of Moroccan origin, one is Algerian and the last has dual Spanish-Moroccan nationality, Kruimel said.

The suspect in the killing a 26-year-old man with dual Moroccan-Dutch citizenship was arrested Tuesday after a shootout with police. He was wounded in the leg. His identity has not been released.
