Arsonists Set Dutch Muslim School Ablaze

Nov 9, 2004 — AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A fire is raging at a Muslim school in the southern Dutch village of Uden, where the attackers left a message referring to the killing of a filmmaker who was critical of Islam, Dutch television said.

The mayor of Uden told NOS television the fire appeared linked to the murder of Theo van Gogh last week. NOS said there was a message left saying “Theo rests in peace.”

Nobody was hurt but NOS showed pictures of firefighters battling flames leaping out of the roof of the building.
