      NEWS BY 10 PM


  20  Montenegro state television gave extensive coverage to Friday's
      rally of support for Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic and his
      beleaguered government. Mr Djukanovic is locked in a struggle for
      control of the government with the ruling Socialist Democratic
      Party of Montenegro and President Momir Bulatovic.

  25  Other media sources said that the state television coverage was
      the most objective report given by the broadcaster for years.

      However, the greater part of the Montenegrin capital, Podgorica,
      suffered a power cut during the main news bulletin which carried
      the report.


      The Mayor of Kragujevac on Saturday proposed Serbian Renewal
      Movement (SPO) leader Draskovic as Zajedno presidential candidate
      for the forthcoming elections. The official SPO statement says
      that the proposal was supported by all regional SPO branches, but
  35  that the final decision would be made by the party's central

      Commenting on the report, Democratic Party leader Zoran Djindjic
      told Radio B92 that it was premature to discuss nominations when
      the elections had not been called and the parties of the coalition
  40  had not yet decided whether they would run.

      Radio B92 asked Mr Draskovic if the proposal had surprised him.
      The SPO leader replied: ``Not at all. I have been fighting for
      fundamental social change in Serbia since 1990, and without false
      modesty I can claim that no one has contributed as much as the SPO
  45  to the lifting of the darkness and that this has emerged as great
      real hope for Serbia. Of course I would accept the candidacy, and
      I am sure I would win in the elections.''


      The Kosovo Liberation Army (OVK) on Saturday claimed
  50  responsibility for the wounding of a Serb policeman and the
      killing of two Albanians. The statement said that the policeman
      had been guilty of anti-Albanian activities and that the Albanian
      victims ``had been loyal to the Serbian regime.''


  55  The Croatian Foreign Minister, Mate Granic, on Saturday said that
      the Yugoslav proposal on dual citizenship was unacceptable to
      Croatia. ``Having regard for the interests of the state, we
      incline more to the model of dual citizenship regulated by
      internal legal regulations, as is usual in European practice,'' Mr
  60  Granic told the Zagreb daily Vjesnik.
