Ivana goes into the media business in Croatia

Ivana Trump, the Czech-born former wife of American billionaire property tycoon Donald, has bought a major stake in Croatian daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija. Ms Trump said she was also negotiating deals to invest in a nationwide private television network and a department store in the centre of Croatia's second city, Split. All three are owned by Croatian tycoon Miroslav Kutle's Globus Group.

Ms Trump said she would edit a weekly page in Slobodna. Among other plans, she mentioned an investment in Mr Kutle's Prima 1 store, which Ms Trump said would be turned into another outlet in her chain "House of Ivana", and the launch of a shopping channel on his network TV Mreza.
