Milosevic Arrest and Yugoslavia

Hosted by
After resisting for more than 36 hours, former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic is in custody, facing charges of corruption and abuse of power. Yet Belgrade has given no indications that he will be sent to the war crimes tribunal in The Hague where he is wanted for crimes against humanity. We consider what Milosevic's arrest means for the world and US-Yugoslavian relations with a consultant to the tribunal, a scholar from the American Enterprise Institute, and representatives from Yugoslavia's government and independent media. (Sara Terry guest hosts.)
