Serbia War Crimes

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli, talks to Robert Siegel from Belgrade about today's meeting between Yugoslav president Vojislav Kostunica and Carla del Ponte, chief prosecutor of the Hague war crimes tribunal. The session broke off abruptly, and neither Kostunica nor del Ponte made a public statement afterwards. Del Ponte was expected to press Kostunica to extradite former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic and other former officials to the Hague, for trial on a range of war crimes.
