8th Anniversary of Prelude to Slovene Independence War

Ljubljana, 22 May - MILITARY/SLOVENIA/ANNIVERSARY
A ceremony marking the 8th anniversary of the first conflict between the Slovene Territorial Defence and the Yugoslav armed forces was held Saturday at the Pekre military training centre near Maribor. On 23 May 1991, Yugoslav troops surrounded the training centre at Pekre where the first generation of Slovene conscripts was being trained. The Pekre events, which claimed the first victim in Slovenia's struggle for independence, were a prelude to the 10-day war in Slovenia that started a month later and the first sign of the bloody conflicts in former Yugoslavia. Keynote speaker at the ceremony was President Milan Kucan.
