NATO 'shocked' by Serbian envoy death

A NATO official says the organisation is shocked after the Serbian ambassador leaps to his death from an airport car park.

Mr Milinkovic was at the airport to meet Deputy Foreign Minister Zoran Vujic and other officials who were due to hold talks with NATO representatives, a diplomat said.

As the delegation walked over to their cars in the diplomatic garage, Mr Milinkovic suddenly walked to a barrier, climbed over it and jumped, the diplomat said.

Serbia is not a member of the military alliance, but has a mission in the headquarters complex.
