Run-off Vote in Yugoslavia

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports that Yugoslavia electoral body ruled that President Slobodan Milosevic and challenger Vojislav Kostunica must face a run-off vote on October 8 because neither won a majority in the first round. Yesterday, thousands of demonstrators gathered in the streets of Belgrade to protest the decision and to show their support for Kostunica who says he is the clear winner of Sunday's election.
