AMSTERDAM — The Islamic extremist jailed for life for the murder of Theo van Gogh almost got a job as a security guard at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, reports say.

Mohammed B. is serving a life sentence

Various Dutch media outlets reported on Friday that Mohammed B., 27, was about to receive a uniform and an access pass in 1998 for Schiphol in 1998. A negative assessment from the police blocked him from getting the job at the last minute.

The claim is based on the contents of a confidential police report about Mohammed B, website planet.nl said.

B.'s job application was rejected because of a fine, the equivalent of EUR 500, he received following an incident in a coffeeshop. He was abusive to a police officer and resisted violently when arrested.

A court in Amsterdam sentenced B. to life in prison last month. The Amsterdammer of Moroccan extraction was found guilty of murdering Van Gogh on 2 November 2004.

He was also found guilty of the attempted murder of several police officers and two passersby and of hindering MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali in carrying out her political duties. The court said all crimes had been committed with terrorist intent.
