Meat is murder...

Meat is murder... is, you know, regular old murder.

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands --A vegan animal rights campaigner has been charged with the murder of Dutch right-wing leader Pim Fortuyn.

Volkert van der Graaf, 32, was remanded in custody for 10 days at a brief court hearing in Amsterdam after being charged with murder.

Van der Graaf, married and with a baby just a few months old, appeared briefly with a lawyer before the court, but made no statement.

His photograph, showing him with a receding hairline and steely gaze, was splashed on the front page of the country's biggest-selling daily, De Telegraaf, Wednesday.

Police say Van der Graaf, who has refused to make a statement, did not have a gun license. Murder is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
