Murdered Dutch Film Maker Van Gogh Jails radical Islamist terror network

Fourteen men have gone on trial in the Netherlands charged with belonging to a radical Islamist terror network.

Among the accused is Mohammed Bouyeri, already jailed for life for the murder of film-maker Theo van Gogh last year.

The trial, the first to come to court under new anti-terror legislation, is being seen as a test case.

The suspects are alleged to be members of the so-called Hofstad group, based in The Hague. Two are also charged with trying to kill police with a grenade. The BBC reports.
