In Belgrade, rival demonstrators rallied over a court decision overturning the 1946 conviction of a Serbian nationalist commander whose Chetnik forces fought Josip Broz Tito’s communist partisans. General Dragoljub “Draza" Mihailovic was executed after a communist court ruled that he collaborated with Nazis during World War II. But Mihailovic’s fate has fueled divisions for decades in Serbia. Nationalists call him a hero killed for political reasons while antifascist demonstrators say he was a war criminal responsible for atrocities against Muslims, Croats, and others.
