The plan: take homos as hostages

A witness in the Hofstad group trial says the group planned to free Mohammed Bouyeri. The idea was to take control of a homo bar in Amsterdam, hold everybody there hostage and demand to free Mohammed Bouyeri. After he was freed they intended to blow up everybody - hostages and themselves. (this is good to keep in mind should such an attack ever occur).

The attack was supposed to take place within the next two or three years. The financing was to come from robbery.

The witness, Jamal B, said he was approached by Bilal L while they were both in prison to recruit him for the attack, telling him he had provided Mohammed Bouyeri with the bike and gun he had used when he killed Theo van Gogh.

Defense lawyers said the entire thing was preposterous.
