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.
