Senior official held over Djindjic death

Police in Serbia say they have arrested the deputy public prosecutor, Milan Saraljic, during their continuing search for the killers of Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic.

Reports say the police allege Mr Saraljic has links with a criminal gang they suspect of being involved in the killing.

He is the first senior official to be arrested over the case. Earlier, the Serbian Government ordered 35 judges to retire, including seven from the Supreme Court. No specific allegations have been made against them. Restrictions on local media are also being enforced, with two dailies – Nacional and Dan – and the weekly Identitet banned on Tuesday allegedly for hindering the police investigation. In a separate development, Serbian Interior Minister Dusan Mihajlovic said police now knew the identities of two of the three people who carried out the assassination. Full Story
