Suspect Arrested in Serbian Prime Minister Assassination

Oleg Nikishin/Getty Images(MADRID) -- Authorities in Spain announced they have arrested a suspect wanted in connection with the 2003 assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic.

Vladimir Milisavljevic was arrested Friday, along with two other men, at a restaurant in Valencia, officials said. Milisavljevic had been sentenced in absentia by a Serbian court for his role in the assassination. Officials say the three men were members of a Serbian paramiliary group called Arkan's Tigers.

Luka Bojovic and Sinisa Petric were also arrested on murder-related charges.

Djindjic was shot by a sniper outside his party headquarters March 12, 2003. In 2007, a court convicted 12 men in the killing, including Milisavljevic.
