MOSCOW The Russian Foreign Ministry says it has received a letter from Slobodan Milosevec (sloh-BOH'-dahn mee-LOH'-shuh-vich) complaining about inadequate treatment at the prison where he was being held for war crimes, and seeking treatment in Moscow.The ministry says the letter asks for Russian support in getting treatment. Meantime, the ministry also says a group of pathologists is ready to fly to The Hague to take part in Milosevic's autopsy.

Officials say they were asked to participate by relatives of the former Yugoslav leader. A spokeswoman for the U-N war crimes tribunal says the a preliminary report reveals Milosevic had been suffering from two heart conditions. She doesn't name the conditions, but says doctors determined they might have caused the heart attack. She also said toxicological tests still haven't been carried out.

Milosevic was found dead in his cell Saturday.
