Yugoslav Prime Minister Resigns Over Milosevic's ExtraditionYugoslav Prime Minister Zoran Zizic resigned Friday in protest against the handover Thursday of former president Slobodan Milosevic to The Hague-based U.N. war crimes tribunal, according to local press reports.
Zizic said the handover of Milosevic was a price "beyond any dignity". "I cannot accept this in my name and in my people's name, and therefore I resign from the post of federal prime minister," he said.
Meanwhile, about 6,000 Milosevic supporters rallied in front of the federal parliament Friday to protest the decision to extradite the former president.
In face of the mounting tensions, President Vojislav Kostunica met army leaders and said after the talks that the crisis "must be resolved by political means".
