Serbian war veterans protest poverty

Jun 19, 2000 -- (RFE/RL) Some 30 members of an independent veterans group barricaded themselves inside the town hall in Kraljevo for two hours on 15 June.

A spokesman for the veterans told AP that they intend to stage further protests until the authorities take steps to improve veterans' living conditions.

The men, who fought in Milosevic's wars in the 1990s, charged the government with totally ignoring their situation.
