CRISIS IN YUGOSLAVIA

Yugoslavs Laud 'Wag the Dog'

April 18, 1999| Associated Press

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia — Yugoslavia's film academy announced Saturday that it awarded its top prize to "Wag the Dog," a film about an American president who fabricates a war in Albania to distract attention from a sex scandal.

The academy recognized the film's stars, director and producers, and it invited them to travel to Belgrade to accept the award.

Belgrade TV stations aired "Wag the Dog" March 26, two days after NATO began pounding Yugoslavia with air raids. The U.S. movie was also shown here last summer.
