Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Three young Muslims killed in the USA this week have been commemorated on the Dam in Amsterdam. Around 19:00 between 100 and 200 people gathered. They carried posters with photographs of the three victims. They also had banners with texts like: stop the smear campaign against Muslims.
The participants of the memorial are angry about the lack of attention in the Dutch media for the murders. They are amazed that the 46-year-old man who shot and killed the Muslims is not called a terrorist.
US President Barack Obama has condemned the murder of the three Muslim students in the state of North Carolina. He called the murder cruel and atrocious. “Nobody in the US should be the target for what they are, how they look, or what religion they profess”, Obama said in a statement.
Last Wednesday, the two women of 19 and 23 years old and a 21-year-old man were shot dead in an apartment at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
