Serbia`s NATO ambassador leaps to death: Officials

Brussels: Officials say Serbia`s ambassador to NATO committed suicide by leaping from a busy parking garage platform at Brussels airport.
A Serbian government statement said today that the envoy, Branislav Milinkovic, 52, died instantly last night.
A diplomat who could not be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media said Milinkovic suddenly jumped from the 8-10 metre-high platform while waiting with the Serbian delegation for foreign ministry officials due to hold talks with NATO officials.

Serbia is not a member of the military alliance, but has a mission in the headquarters complex. Milinkovic, a former journalist, previously served as Serbia`s ambassador to Austria.

The death occurred during two days of meetings of NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.
