BELGRADE, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Leading Serbian economist Mladjan Dinkic warned on Friday that Slobodan Milosevic, who had earlier conceded defeat at a presidential election, was trying to fly Yugoslavia's state gold reserves out to China.
``A DC10 (JAT's DC-10, YU-AMB I presume ) bound for Bejing and scheduled to take off at 11 p.m. (2100 GMT) is still at the airport. It will soon take off. Tonight we fear there is an attempt to take the gold out,'' Dinkic told Reuters by telephone.
Dinkic, a backer of president-elect Vojislav Kostunica, said earlier the opposition had sealed off the central bank but had not been able to get into the treasury where an estimated $150 million-worth of gold reserves are supposed to be kept.
