A court in Antwerp has found Hans van Themsche guilty of a race-inspired shooting spree resulting in the death of two people, and wounding of one. The victims included a Malian nanny and her two year old, and an injured woman of Turkish descent. The gunman told police he hoped to kill at least five foreigners. Van Themsche’s conviction is the first of its kind under a recent law introduced in 2003 to punish crimes with racist motivations.
