    Controversial film-maker murdered in Amsterdam

    Controversial Dutch film-maker and newspaper columnist Theo van Gogh, who made a film about violence against women in Islamic societies, has been murdered in Amsterdam, police have said.

    Amsterdam police said Mr Van Gogh was stabbed and shot in the centre of the city.

    Mr Van Gogh's short feature film Submission angered some Dutch Muslims for its portrayal of a Muslim woman who is abused by her husband.

    Police said they arrested a man at the scene after an exchange of gunfire in which the suspect wounded a police officer. The suspect was wounded in his leg.

    Some Dutch media said Mr Van Gogh had been planning to make a film about anti-immigration populist Pim Fortuyn, who was gunned down by an animal rights activist in May 2002, days before his grass-roots party stormed to second place in a general election.

    Mr Van Gogh received death threats after Submission was broadcast earlier this year. He made the film with Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali refugee who won Dutch citizenship after fleeing an arranged marriage 12 years ago.

    She has been under police protection after receiving death threats following the airing of the film on Dutch national television.
