Here is some of the reaction to the news from the former Yugoslavia and around the world:
I hope very much this event, the death of Milosevic will help Serbia to look definitely to the future.
It is clear that they have killed him.
This is an outrage. Milosevic was kidnapped from Belgrade and illegally extradited.
The real culprits, murderers and killers are in Brussels and in The Hague.
I suppose those of us who would have wished to see justice rather than death be delivered to Milosevic will regret the fact that the justice process is halted.
There is no doubt that of the evil that stalked the Balkans for the best part of a decade one way or another, one of the primary authors was Slobodan Milosevic.
Unfortunately, he did not face justice for crimes he has committed in Kosovo as well.
He has a history of suicide in his family - both his parents - but as far as he was concerned, his attitude to me was quite the opposite from that. He was determined to keep fighting his case.
