AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch court on Friday convicted politician Geert Wilders of discrimination and inciting hatred against Moroccans, but it imposed no penalty on him.

The charges stem from a 2014 incident in which Wilders led supporters to chant that they wanted "Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!" Moroccans in the Netherlands.
