Slobodan Milosevic's flag-draped coffin was placed on public display Thursday in a red-carpeted room inside Belgrade's Museum of Revolution, a gallery once devoted to former Yugoslav dictator Josip Broz Tito. Hundreds of tearful supporters paid their last respects to the late Serbian leader, who died while being tried for war crimes. Milosevic's body returned home Wednesday in a jetliner's cargo hold to a low-key welcome. Supporters stood in the cold and snow flurries and greeted his coffin with tears, kisses and wailing. Milosevic died last weekend at a UN detention center in the Netherlands near the war crimes tribunal that was trying him on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity. He will be buried Saturday on the grounds of the family estate in the industrial town of Pozarevac, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of Belgrade.
