Dutch cartoonist arrested
by Toby Sterling
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - A Dutch political cartoonist is facing possible hate crimes charges.
The cartoonist, who works under the pseudonym Gregorius Nekschot, was arrested Tuesday and held overnight before being released.
Officials say a criminal investigation is continuing into whether Nekschot's work targets people because of their race or religion.
Nekschot is known primarily for cartoons mocking Muslims and leftists.
