Milosevic's body arrives in Belgrade

Slobodan Milosevic’s body returned to his homeland today, flown to Belgrade from the Netherlands where he died last weekend at a UN detention centre near the war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

A commercial JAT Airways plane carrying the coffin landed at Belgrade’s airport, where a dark blue minivan belonging to a private funeral parlour was parked on the tarmac, waiting to take the body to a morgue in the Serbian capital. A public viweing of the body is arranged for Thursday and Friday before the burial on Saturday in Milosevic’s hometown of Pozarevac.

Members of Milosevic’s Socialist Party stood at the airport in a wintry chill, holding a large wreath decorated with red roses, the party symbol.

Serbian television carried the arrival live, repeatedly zooming in on airport workers unloading baggage and a baby stroller before the coffin emerged from the plane’s cargo bay as Milosevic family lawyers signed documents to take formal possession of the body.
