Needle attack

The week's news at a glance.

Belgrade

The sister of slain Serbian prime minister Zoran Djindjic was hospitalized this week after two men broke into her home and injected her with an unknown substance. Gordana Djindjic-Filipovic’s husband, who found her unconscious on the floor, said the attack was apparently intended to derail the prosecution of her brother’s killer. The men told Djindjic-Filipovic that they would kill her whole family if Milorad Lukovic—the man indicted for the assassination—was convicted. Lukovic had been on the run for 14 months before turning himself in two weeks ago. Djindjic, a popular pro-Western reformer, was the main force behind the ouster of Slobodan Milosevic.
