Two top suspects in Djindjic murder killed in shootout by Serbian police

Two alleged leaders of a mafia-linked group suspected of assassinating Serbian prime minister Zoran Djindjic were killed in a shootout with police in Belgrade as they tried to resist arrest, police said. Dusan Spasojevic, known as Siptar, the chief of the so-called Zemun gang, and Milan Lukovic, whose nickname is Kum, used automatic weapons to fire on the officers on Thursday, a police spokesman told B92 radio station. They were also armed with hand grenades, he added. Police had tracked them down in the suburbs of Belgrade “where they had been hiding the last few days,” he said. Lukovic and Spasojevic, aged 35 and 34 respectively, were the top two suspects in the March 12 killing in broad daylight that shook the nation and raised fears for both Serbia’s and the Balkan region’s stability.
