2 suspects face court over shooting of Dutch journalist

Two men arrested over the shooting of Dutch crime reporter Peter R. de Vries, who is fighting for his life in an Amsterdam hospital, will appear in court later this week, police said Wednesday.

De Vries, a star reporter who had received multiple threats for his work covering the criminal underworld, was shot five times, including once in the head, after leaving broadcaster RTL’s Amsterdam studio following a TV appearance on Tuesday evening, according to local media reports.
