U.S. Ambassador to Serbia Calls Security Insufficient

With hundreds of thousands of Serbians in the streets protesting the West's support for an independent Kosovo, the U.S. ambassador in Serbia expected the government would provide the U.S. Embassy better protection Thursday.

Cameron Munter says police took 30 minutes to respond to the attack on the embassy, during which time a protester was killed.
