Serbia PM moved to safety after weapons found near home

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Serbia’s pro-Euro­pean Prime Min­is­ter Alek­san­dar Vu­cic was moved to a safe lo­ca­tion after an arse­nal of weapons, in­clud­ing a rocket launcher, was found close to his house near Belgrade, which a min­is­ter said was “prepa­ra­tion for as­sas­si­na­tion”. Au­thor­i­ties also found four hand grenades and a large quan­tity of am­mu­ni­tion for 7.62mm au­to­matic ri­fles and 7.9mm sniper ri­fles. A for­mer as­so­ciate of late Ser­bian pres­i­dent Slo­bo­dan Milo­se­vic and once a staunch ul­tra­na­tion­al­ist, Mr Vu­cic, 46, has since re­mod­elled him­self as a pro-EU re­former. Serbia was rocked by the as­sas­si­na­tion of demo­cratic pro-Euro­pean prime min­is­ter Zo­ran Djind­jic in 2003.
