Andrija Artukovic, convicted nearly a year ago of ordering more than 1,000 deaths during World War II, may escape a Yugoslav firing squad because of his poor health, family members have been told. A Yugoslav court has informed Artukovic's attorney that the 87-year-old man's execution has been postponed because "a medical review determined that he is in no condition to be executed," said Radoslav Artukovic, the ailing man's son.

The son of convicted war criminal Andrija Artukovic said Thursday that he will fight attempts by the Immigration and Naturalization Service to deport his mother, Ana Artukovic of Seal Beach. "You can bet your bottom we will try to have her declared a U.S. citizen," Radoslav Artukovic said of his 65-year-old, Austrian-born mother. "We will do everything we can. I can't believe this is happening. She has lived in this country for 38 years."
