Croatian PM Pledges Action Against Attackers of Journalist


Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader says his government will take every measure to bring to justice those responsible for the Monday night attack on a leading investigative journalist.

The Croatian news agency Hina says Mr. Sanader made his comments as he met in Zagreb with leaders of Croatia's Journalists Association after the attack on Dusan Miljus, a reporter for the Jutarnji List daily. Miljus is known for his reports on organized crime activities

The journalist suffered a concussion and broken arm when masked attackers assaulted him with baseball bats in front of his Zagreb home. The incident followed a series of death threats against Miljus.

Organized crime groups in Croatia have repeatedly targeted journalists who had probed their activities.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
