A week after Macedonia's president Boris Trajkovski died in a government-owned Beech King Air 200 in mountains near Stolac in south-east Bosnia, his body was recovered and flown to the capital Skopje in a NATO aircraft. The aircraft crashed on 26 February in poor weather, with low cloud, rain and fog in a mountainous area still sown with land mines. The president had been en route to Mostar, Bosnia with six of his staff for an international investment conference. All on board, including the two pilots, died in the crash, according to the Bosnian civil aviation authority, which confirmed that the reason for the accident is not yet known.
