Tito's military medals laid at foot of his coffin (34K)

Image: Cases containing dozens of medals won by Marshal Tito for military valor are carried to the foot of his coffin which lies in the Yugoslav Assembly Building in Belgrade. Family and Yugoslav dignitaries are in sombre attendance. Soon the doors will be opened to the Yugoslav people who will file past his coffin weeping, saluting, remembering, and fearing for the future. May 1980.

Sound:
air-raid sirens and gun salute which were sounded at Tito's funeral. These are undoubtedly the same air-raid sirens that sound over Belgrade today as NATO bombs the city in punishment for President Melosovic's continued program of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo province.
