Peaceful Funeral

According to media reports, funeral of Janko Bobetko had its share of daily politics, but speakers – Bobetko's right-wing military comrades – reserved their criticism to Hague tribunal.

The funeral was attended by some 25,000 people, but some were notably missing. Learning from their traumatic 2000-01 experiences, Račan (Racan) and Mesić (Mesic) chose not to appear and they sent their represantives instead, thus avoiding possible booing. Speaker Zlatko Tomčić (Zlatko Tomcic) attended today's first part of funeral procession in Zagreb, thus giving cryptic hints that his HSS party after elections might think about coalition with right-wing whose leaders were at funeral at all stages.
