The pro-independence bloc in Montenegro declared victory Sunday in the republic's referendum to split from its union with much larger Serbia. "It is my pleasure to announce that Montenegro tonight has become an independent state," said Predrag Sekulic, an official of the pro independence group. "The victory is much higher that the 55 percent needed for Montenegro to become independent."
