Preliminary results of an autopsy Sunday showed former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic died of a heart attack, an official of the UN war crimes tribunal said.

Milosevic, 64, was found dead in his detention cell outside The Hague on Saturday. A Tribunal spokeswoman said a statement on the autopsy findings would be released shortly, but could not immediately comment.
