War Crimes Tribunal and Yugoslavia

NPR's Sarah Chayes reports officials at the international war crimes tribunal in the Hague are pleased that the new president of Yugoslavia has toned down Belgrade's rhetoric against the court. Tribunal officials are also happy about cooperation from the new Yugoslav authorities in their investigation into the finances of former president Slobodan Milosevic. However, prosecutors are adamant that Milosevic and other accused war criminals be turned over to the Hague -- a move the new Yugoslav president, Vojislav Kostunica seems to have ruled out.
