The trial of a Dutch anti-islam politician charged with hate crimes has begun in Amsterdam. It is a landmark case testing the limits of free speech in the Netherlands. Geert Wilders has been charged with incitement of hatred and discrimination against Muslims. In his short film, Fitna, he compared the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf. Supporters of Mr Wilders have been demonstrating outside the Amsterdam court. If he loses he faces two years in prison.
