Madrid - Spain's National Court on Wednesday approved the extradition to Serbia of Vladimir Milisavljevic, one of the convicted killers of then Serbian prime minister Zoran Djindjic in 2003, a court official said.

Milisavljevic, known in Serbia as Budala (“The Bastard”), was sentenced in absentia in 2007 to 35 years in prison for his role, along with other members of the Zemun clan, in the shooting of Djindjic in Belgrade. - Sapa-AFP
