GroenLinks parliamentarian Kathalijne Buitenweg called on Minister Kasja Ollongren of Home Affairs to explain why French Islam critic Zineb El Rhazoui was refused protection for her talk in De Balie in Amsterdam on Thursday, RTL Nieuws reports.

El Rhazoui worked at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo when a terrorist attack on the magazine killed twelve people in 2015. Since then she's been the target of numerous death threats, and is therefore under intense security in her own country.
