October 20, 1987|Associated Press

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia — Yugoslav President Lazar Mojsov collapsed Monday in the national Parliament and was carried from the assembly hall, but he later reappeared and finished his speech.

Mojsov, 67, was in the middle of an address on Yugoslavia's protracted economic and social crisis when he was stricken.

A doctor was summoned and he was carried from the hall. Thirty-five minutes later, the president re-entered Parliament, sat down and finished reading his speech. The cause of Mojsov's indisposition was not disclosed.
