The leader of Muslims in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and his aide were shot and killed Wednesday, five weeks after the imam had distanced himself from Iran's death sentence for Salman Rushdie, author of the controversial novel, "The Satanic Verses." Imam Abdullah Ahdal, 36, a Saudi Arabian known as a moderate, and Salim Behir, a 40-year-old Tunisian who headed the Brussels mosque's social services and library, were shot at close range in the imam's office in the mosque, police said.
