Autopsy Shows Heart Attack Killed Milosevic

By  | 

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - The U-N war crimes tribunal says it was apparently a heart attack that killed Slobodan Milosevic.

The tribunal cites preliminary findings from Dutch pathologists who conducted a nearly eight-hour autopsy today on the body of the former Yugoslav dictator.

Milosevic, who was 64, was found dead in his cell Saturday morning.

He had suffered from heart ailments and high blood pressure, and his bad health caused numerous breaks in his four-year trial before the tribunal.

Milosevic's body is to be delivered to his family by Monday.

But there's disagreement among relatives about whether he should be
buried in his homeland of Serbia or in Russia, where his wife and son live in exile.
