AMSTERDAM, Feb 24 (Reuters) The U N war crimes tribunal has rejected a request by Slobodan Milosevic for provisional release from detention in the Netherlands to travel to Russia for medical treatment, the court said today.

Milosevic is suffering from a heart condition and high blood pressure. His trial for crimes against humanity is expected to end this year.

Prosecutors suspect Milosevic's wife and son live in Moscow and have opposed his release despite Russia's promise to return him, fearing the 64-year-old could say his health stops him from travelling back to The Hague.
