Serbian police on Tuesday said they had arrested two former intelligence officers suspected of involvement in the murder of journalist Slavko Curuvija, a fierce critic of late the strongman Slobodan Milosevic.The prosecutor said the arrests came after a new witness decided to talk, Milorad Ulemek "Legija", former head of an elite secret police unit who has been serving two 40-year jail terms for masterminding the murder of Serbian reformist prime minister Zoran Djindjic in 2003 and former president Ivan Stambolic in 2000 .Serbia's powerful Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, Milosevic's information minister at the time of Curuvija's murder, said there were two more witnesses to back up the new testimony, but refused to reveal their identities.Curuvija's murder was widely blamed on Milosevic's secret police.
