Letter on the Dutch filmmaker body had death threats

Moroccan teenagers have allegedly spat on a large portrait of murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh in Amsterdam, it was reported Thursday.

Shortly after Van Gogh's murder on Tuesday, spray can and graffiti artist Donovan Spaanstra, 33, painted a portrait of the Dutch television celebrity and columnist on the facade of a building in the Warmoesstraat.

"For an artist, from an artist. Van Gogh has walked past here thousands of times," Spaanstra told newspaper De Telegraaf.

Initially greeted by applause for painting the portrait, Spaanstra claimed some Moroccan teens then hassled him, screaming "&to=http:// english.pravda.ru/hotspots/2002/07/20/32919.html ' target=_blank>Hamas, Hamas". He claimed they even spat on the portrait and did not want to discuss the killing, reports Expatica.
