Croatia marks Storm anniversary





Thousands of Croats in the town of Knin have celebrated the 10th anniversary of a Croatian offensive which crushed a breakaway Serb republic in the region.

Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader, attending a military parade, said the Operation Storm offensive in 1995 was magnificent and liberating.

But Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Draskovic said the anniversary was tragic and should not be celebrated.
