Vlajko Stojiljkovic, a former Serbian interior minister accused of war crimes in Kosovo, died Saturday, two days after shooting himself outside Belgrade's parliament building, state television announced. Stojiljkovic was in charge of Serbia's special police under Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and was considered one of the top aides to Milosevic, who left office in the fall of 2000. He shot himself Thursday night, just a few hours after the parliament approved a law paving the way for more extraditions of war crimes suspects to the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands. Local media speculated in recent weeks that Stojiljkovic would be among the first indictees sent to the U.N. tribunal.
