Pim Fortuyn,

maverick right-wing Dutch politician, was assassinated in Hilversum, nine days before the May 15 general election. Fortuyn, who was openly gay and rabidly anti-immigration, headed the Lijst Pim Fortuyn party. His murder shocked the nation and rocked the normally bland political scene.
