Montenegrin separatists demonstrate in Podgorica

Several thousand people have taken part in an anti-war demonstration in the Montenegrin capital, Podgorica.

The rally was organised by the opposition Liberal Party, which wants Montenegro to end its federal links with Serbia and restore its historic independence.

Demonstrators denounced both President Slobodan Milosevic and the Montenegrin leader, Milo Djukanovic.

Correspondents say Montenegro is deeply divided between those who want the small mountainous republic to go it alone and those who are determined to keep ties with Serbia.
