Premier says Milosevic can be buried in Serbia
BELGRADE, Mar 14 (Reuters) Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica today said the late Yugoslav strongman Slobodan Milosevic could be buried in Serbia, now that a court decision has cleared the way for his widow to attend.
''The court's decision that Mirjana Markovic can return to the country for the funeral of her husband Slobodan Milosevic allows the family to conduct the funeral in Serbia,'' Kostunica told the official state news agency Tanjug.
Serbia has already ruled out any state ceremony for the burial of Milosevic, who died on Saturday in detention at the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague where he was on trial for genocide.
