Milosevic wife sought

The week's news at a glance.

Novi Sad, Serbia

Police have finally found the remains of former Serbian president Ivan Stambolic, two years after he disappeared. Officials said Stambolic was killed by two gunshots to the head from a special unit loyal to former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic. The body was buried in quicklime, in the apparent hope of destroying any evidence of Stambolic’s identity. Police said they had “credible suspicions” that Milosevic’s wife, Mira Markovic, was involved in the killing, and would issue an international arrest warrant for her if she didn’t turn herself in. Markovic’s daughter, Marija, said her mother had no intention of complying, adding, “Let them issue a warrant.” Markovic is believed to be hiding in Russia. Her husband is on trial in The Hague for crimes against humanity.
