Belgrade Radio Station Says Milosevic Dead
The station said it had heard the news from unofficial sources. A senior European Union diplomat said he believed the report was true and thought the U.N. war crimes tribunal was preparing a statement.
Milosevic's heart condition and high blood pressure have repeatedly interrupted his trial on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
Milosevic was sent to The Hague war crimes court in June 2001, eight months after he was toppled in a popular uprising.
He was widely blamed in the West for the violent break-up of old socialist Yugoslavia in the 1990s.
