Drago Hedl, editor of the weekly Feral Tribune, received an anonymous death threat by mail on December 6, according to press reports. Hedl said the letter, which also threatened a source, cited a July article about the abduction, torture, and murder of ethnic Serb civilians in Osijek in 1991 and 1992. The source implicated the current head of the Osijek municipal council, who denied responsibility. Police said that they were investigating the threat and providing Hedl with protection, the state news agency HINA reported.
