Sister Of Assassinated Serbian Premier Attacked

16 May 2004 -- The sister of Serbia's assassinated Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic has been hospitalized after being attacked in her home by unknown assailants.

Judge Dragan Obradovic said that several men in the evening of 15 May burst into Gordana Djindjic-Filipovic's home near the western Serbian city of Valjevo. He said the assailants threatened her and then injected her with a still unidentified fluid.

Doctors say Djindjic-Filipovic's life is not in danger.

The attack comes after both Djindjic-Filipovic and her mother last week requested police protection after receiving anonymous death threats on the telephone.
