Peter R de Vries: Dutch crime reporter dies after shooting - BBC
The prominent Dutch crime reporter Peter R de Vries, who was shot and seriously wounded in central Amsterdam nine days ago, has died.

"Peter fought to the end, but was unable to win the battle," a statement from his relatives said.

The 64-year-old was shot in the head minutes after leaving a TV studio.

The shooting shocked the Netherlands, where Mr de Vries was well-known for his investigations of mobsters and drug lords. Two suspects were arrested.

Mr de Vries had won critical acclaim for his reporting on the Dutch underworld - including the 1983 kidnapping of the beer millionaire Freddy Heineken.
