Car bomb in Serbian town kills driver "with criminal record"

50-year-old Slobodan Trninic died on Tuesday morning in a car bomb explosion in Prnjavor, a small town near Sabac in western Serbia.

Belgrade-based Blic is reporting that the device was planted under his car, and that the explosion resulted in glass and parts of the vehicle ending up "40 meters away from the site."

Emergency HQ proposes closing Sabac-Sremska Mitrovica road

SABAC - The Sabac headquarters for emergencies has proposed that the road between Sabac and Sremska Mitrovica be closed because the Sava water level near that industrial city in western Serbia has risen by 80 percent in one day.

Preparations for protecting the city from the flood are under way, because the Sava is expected to reach a historic high in the next 48 hours.
