Noah speaks with NPR's Sylvia Poggioli in Yugoslavia about a protest held today against the leadership of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. An estimated 10-thousand people turned out for the rally, which was held in Cacak, about 90-miles south of Belgrade. Officials refused to give permission for the demonstration, but police did not disperse the people who gathered. An explosion went off in the town's central square just as the protest got under way, but no one was injured, and the event proceeded without any further disturbance.
