Milosevic's Son Booted From China

The reviled son of deposed Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic was turned back at Beijing’s airport today after arriving on a flight from Moscow, an official with Russian airline Aeroflot said.

Marko Milosevic arrived from the Russian capital this morning on an Aeroflot flight holding a diplomatic passport but boarded a flight back to Moscow about two hours later due to “visa problems,” the official said.

He had talked his way through Moscow immigration after arriving there from Belgrade without a visa with the help of his uncle Borislav, the Yugoslav ambassador, the Yugoslav Beta news agency reported on Sunday.

“He’s already gone back to Russia,” said the Aeroflot official, who declined to be identified.

It was not clear why Marko Milosevic, a macho playboy with an extensive business empire, came to Beijing, where the Communist government has been a staunch supporter of his father.
