Rotterdam Mayor: “I have been threatened with death”

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb has said that he has been threatened with death.  This happened after a debate in the municipal council which initially had been requested by the Muslim party Denk.  It concerned the fact that Aboutaleb had permitted a demonstration in front of a mosque by a right wing group.  The Turkish Minister of European Affairs, Ömer Çelik had heavily criticized Aboutaleb in this matter.  Aboutaleb retorted that he should mind his own business.
