Serbian journalists' houses fire-bombed
Friday, 26 October 2012 11:13

Molotov cocktails have been thrown at the houses of two journalists in the Serbian capital, Belgrade

The first fire-bomb was aimed at the house of Damir Dragic, the director of the Belgrade-based tabloid daily, Informer. No one was injured but the family car was wrecked.

The second, a week later, landed late at night on the terrace outside the home of Biljana Vujovic, a presenter with TV Kopernikus. He managed to extinguish the fire before it could spread.

The secretary-general of the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), Oliver Vujovic, said: "If police do not find the perpetrators and bring them to justice, it will likely be assumed that attacks against journalists will simply go unpunished, as it has often happened in the past."
