Minister suspects child was abducted "to be sold"
BELGRADE -- Nebojsa Stefanovic says it is suspected that the French citizens who last week abducted a child in Belgrade were operating as part of a human trafficking ring.
According to the interior minister, the 2-year-old girl could have been taken in order to be "sold."
Berislav Jelinic, editor-in-chief of Nacional and former colleague of Nacional's founder and editor Ivo Pukanic, expressed deep dissatisfaction with a verdict of a Belgrade court on Monday on Pukanic's killing.
The former editor was killed along with a co-worker, Niko Franjic, by a car bomb in Zagreb in October 2008.
