BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbian prosecutors have indicted four former secret service officials in the 1999 killing of a prominent independent journalist and publisher during late leader Slobodan Milosevic's autocratic rule.
Prosecutors said Friday that ex-spy agency chief Radomir Markovic and three others were charged with planning the killing of journalist Slavko Curuvija outside his apartment building in central Belgrade, the capital.
The killing took place during a NATO air war against Serbia over the independence-seeking province of Kosovo.
Curuvija was a fierce critic of Milosevic. Days before he was gunned down in a hail of bullets, Curuvija was singled out by Milosevic's powerful wife, Mirjana Markovic, as a supporter of the NATO bombing.
Curuvija's family has accused Markovic of ordering the attack. She has been granted political asylum in Russia.
