ZAGREB — A Croatian homosexuals' association said Friday it had received death threats via e-mail that came from a computer at the country's defence ministry.

Dorino Manzin, president of the Iskorak (Step Forward) organisation, said he had received three such e-mails since October 15. He was able to prove the e-mails came from the ministry computer.

Ministry spokesman Mate Radeljic told the country's HINA news agency Friday they were investigating Manzin's allegations and would say more "as soon as the investigation is completed".

He added: "It is in the best interest of the Defence Ministry to discover the sender, so that the ministry can avoid acquiring an image of a homophobic and aggressive institution." – Sapa-dpa
