The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland has filed charges against a Swiss politician for incitement to commit a crime after he appeared to welcome the recent shooting of a Muslim and called for more such shootings.
Minutes after a man was shot to death in a mosque in northeastern Switzerland on Friday, Jean-Luc Addor, vice-president of the rightwing Swiss People's Party in canton Valais, tweeted "On en redemande!" ("Let's have more!")
The shooting in St Gallen appears to have been part of a family feud. Police arrested a man who was found in the mosque holding a handgun.
