Corpse in US Embassy Belgrade Identified

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

You’ll recall that when the mass of rioters finally withdrew late Thursday night from the grounds of the US embassy in Belgrade, one thing they left behind was the charred body of someone whose interaction with one or more of the many fires set there, shall we say, had turned out unfortunate.

But who could it be? It seems the burns suffered made identification all the more difficult. Personnel accountability was rather easier to establish for embassy staff, and no one was missing there.

Now Le Figaro reports the ironic answer, confirmed by judicial sources in Belgrade: Belgrade: The Deceasd, A Kosovo Refugee. The victim was of course one of the invading rioters, namely 21 year-old Zoran Vujovic, studying at in Serbia’s second-largest city of Novi Sad, but who had previously fled Kosovo with his family. Police had only been made aware that he was missing after he failed to return to Novi Sad on Friday from the demonstration.
