Football: Seeding forces new agenda on United

DILEMMAS ARE the football manager's lot and Sir Alex Ferguson has a large one to ponder before tonight. On one hand he wants to rest weary players; on the other, he would like to beat Sturm Graz at Old Trafford to ensure Manchester United finish top of Champions' League Group D and acquire seeded status for the second phase. How he balances this wish list will dictate the character of the match.

Football Champion's League: Zagreb's victory increases pressure

Football: Keane's return will restore United's balance

THERE ARE many naff things about the European Champions' League - the homogenised opening to matches to name just one - but Sturm Graz have capped them all.

War In The Balkans: `Once you kill people because you don't like what they say, you change the rules of war'

HANGING upside-down from the wreckage was a dead man, in his fifties perhaps, although a benevolent grey dust had covered his face. Not far away, also upside-down - his legs trapped between tons of concrete and steel - was a younger man in a pullover, face grey, blood dribbling from his head on to the rubble beneath.

Obituary: Slavko Curuvija

ON 11 April at 4.51 pm, two masked men killed the journalist and newspaper proprietor Slavko Curuvija in front of his own house in Belgrade. Few political killings in wartime Serbia measure up to the loss of such a prominent and respected public figure. And the symbolic value of the act is even more ominous: if the sacred cows of the Serbian elite are not safe, then who is? The threat to Belgrade's intelligentsia comes not simply from Tomahawk missiles, but from what will happen after the Nato bombing of Yugoslavia.

THE COPS were poking around outside Slavko Curuvija's home yesterday morning. They had already collected the cartridge cases from the pavement outside 35 Lole Ribara street, and a police labrador was sniffing the rubbish bins outside the grey, five-storey block with the chemist's shop located on the ground floor.
