     SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) _ Dragan Banovic, a long-time
Associated Press Television News stringer who covered a series of
wars that erupted after the dissolution of Yugoslavia, has died. He
was 60.

     Banovic was based in the Croatian coastal city of Dubrovnik and
has covered its siege by Serbian and Montenegrin forces for the
local Croatian channel HRT in 1991. He worked for AP from 1994 and
has covered the war in Bosnia, Kosovo and the NATO bombing of
Yugoslavia.

     Banovic lost a short battle against cancer and died early
Wednesday morning in the Dubrovnik hospital, his family says.

     Banovic supplied many stories to AP, including an exclusive
interview with the mother of Radovan Karazdic when the former
Bosnian political leader was on the run from the UN war crimes
tribunal.
