Slobodan Milosevic

Preliminary findings from a nearly eight-hour autopsy showed that former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic died of a heart attack, the UN war crimes tribunal said on Sunday evening.


"According to the pathologists, Slobodan Milosevic's cause of death was a "myocardial infarction." Further, the pathologists identified two heart conditions that Slobodan Milosevic suffered from," the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia said in a statement.


It said that a toxicological examination will still be carried out and the final report will be issued as soon as possible.


Milosevic's body was to be delivered to his family by Monday, according to the tribunal.


Milosevic, 64, was found dead Saturday in his cell at the UN detention unit in Scheveningen near The Hague. He suffered a heart trouble and high blood pressure that had repeatedly interrupted his trial in The Hague.


In a trial that started on Feb. 12, 2002, Milosevic faced 66 charges of war crimes, including genocide for his role in the Balkan wars following the breakup of the Yugoslav federation in the 1990s.
