BUENOS AIRES, Oct 20 (AFP) -
Nebjosa Minic, a Serbian police commander accused of war crimes in the former Yugoslavia, has died in Argentina where he had been detained since May, local officials in Mendoza province said.
Minic, 40, suffered from AIDS and lung cancer, but the cause of death at a hospital in Mendoza was not given.
The UN war crimes court for the former Yugoslavia had sought his extradition for trial for allegedly ordering war crimes against the civilian population in Kosovo in 1999.
He was stopped in Mendoza after an anonymous tip to authorities. He was carrying a fake passport in the name of Goran Petrovic, a former minister of Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic.
