Greek Police Arrest Djindjic Assassination Suspect

17 July 2004 -- Greek police have arrested a Serbian man suspected of involvement with the murder of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic last year.

The Salonika police chief said that Dejan Milenkovic was arrested in a large-scale operation last night.

Milenkovic was reportedly unarmed, but had a suitcase full of cash.

Serbian authorities are expected to request his extradition.

Djindjic was shot dead in Belgrade by a sniper in March of 2003. Serbian officials believe some 200 people were involved in a criminal conspiracy behind the killing.
