YUGOSLAV VIGIL MARKS 1 YEAR OF PROTESTS

Thousands of students demanding the resignation of President Slobodan Milosevic held an all-night vigil and blocked rush hour traffic Wednesday to mark the anniversary of massive anti-Communist protests.

Students chanted "Red Bandits!" and "Slobo Get Lost!" and rock music blared in the center of the Serbian capital.Speakers addressed the crowd, demanding new elections and a democratic constitution for the largest and long-dominant republic of an all-but-dissolved Yugoslavia.
