Slobo: I'm Not Dead

yugoslavia-milosevic"Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated."

That famous quote is from renowned author Mark Twain, answering reports that he'd kicked the bucket.

Former Yugoslavian president Solobodan Milosevic has found himself in a situation similar to Twain's.

He is laughing off a fake report that said he'd died in a freak paragliding accident.

A hoax press release, announcing the war criminal's death in an accident in California, was posted on website iNewswire on Tuesday.

Milosevic's publicist was quick to reassure friends, family and fans that Slobodan is very much alive and well.

Matthew Labov said: "Not much to say other than we heard and read about it this morning and reacted accordingly.

"There was no point in trying to track (the source) down as it was obviously a hoax."

The owner of the paragliding company who was mentioned in Molosevic's death story, Josh Meyers, said: "I have no knowledge of Slobodan Milosevic paragliding."

We're pleased to hear that these reports are very greatly exaggerated indeed!

You are too twisted. And your grasp of the news industry is a little too precise.
