NIS, Yugoslavia (Reuters) - A man died Tuesday when he hit a leftover NATO cluster bomb while digging in his garden in southern Serbia, police said.

Vladimir Jovanovic, 70, died in the explosion, Nis police said. The bomb was dropped by NATO in May during its 11-week air campaign against Yugoslavia's repression of ethnic Albanians in the Kosovo province.

Jovanovic's son Ljubisa told the state news agency Tanjug that his father was wounded in a NATO attack 11 months ago in the same area.
