An explosive device was found under a vehicle used by the leader of the pro-Western Liberal Democratic Party late Friday, two days before Serbs vote in parliamentary elections, a party official said. A security guard noticed the explosive planted underneath Cedomir Jovanovic's sports utility vehicle, which had been parked in downtown Belgrade while the opposition politician was at a meeting nearby, according to party spokesman Vera Didanovic. An anti-terrorist police squad was called to remove the device, Didanovic said. Police, who declined to comment, closed off a downtown area, but no residents have been evacuated.
