Taliban claims attack on Dutch chief’s son is retaliation for ‘Fitna’

Lieutenant Dennis van Uhm he son of the Netherlands’ new military chief was one of two Dutch NATO soldiers killed in a bomb explosion in Afghanistan on Friday. Taliban militants claimed responsibility for the attack, and said that the attack was in retaliation for the anti-Islam film _Fitna’ released by a Dutch MP. “We knew that the son of Dutch chief of staff was in the vehicle” said rebel spokesman Yousuf Ahmadi – changing his account from a previous statement that the militant group did not know the identities of those in the car. “This [attack] was part of our operation against the Dutch. First it was because they have occupied our country and secondly it was in retaliation to the Dutch insult to our great prophet Mohammed,” said Ahmadi.
