Dusko Jovanovic, publisher and editor of the daily Dan, was gunned down in the street outside his newspaper’s headquarters in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, on 28 May 2004.
He was getting into his car when he was hit in the head and chest by shots fired from an automatic rifle. His assailants fled in a black vehicle. Jovanovic died shortly after being rushed to a hospital.
Dan said Jovanovic had received many death threats.
