Slobodan Milosevic Found Dead in Cell

From the Washington Post:

Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslav leader who presided over the Balkan wars of the 1990s, was found dead Saturday in his cell at a United Nations prison near The Hague where he was on trial for war crimes, among them genocide in the form of "ethnic cleansing."
The 65-year-old Milosevic "was found lifeless on his bed in his cell," according to a statement issued by war crimes tribunal. Officials said Milosevic, who had been in poor health and whose trial has been interrupted often because of his chronic heart condition, appeared to have died of natural causes.
