Ramsey Clark visits Milosevic

The former United States attorney general, Ramsey Clark, has visited the ousted Yugoslav president, Slobodan Milosevic, at the United Nations detention unit near the Hague.

Mr Milosevic is awaiting trial before the tribunal on charges of crimes against humanity.

Mr Clark, who condemned the Nato bombing of Yugoslavia, said earlier that Mr Milosevic had asked for the visit thorugh intermediaries.
