World Brief

The government has barred the country’s media, including state-owned Radio Television Serbia and commercial nets TV Pink and BK TV, from reporting on the hunt for Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic’s killers.

The nets are struggling under a March 12 emergency decree, passed the day a sniper gunned down Djindjic outside the Ser-bian parliament, which means they can only broadcast state-approved press releases.

The clampdown comes amid fears that organized crime bosses thought to have links to the media are behind the killing.
