About Dragica Lendić Bebek
The Passenger and Crew List, April 4, 1996
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A delegation of American corporate and government leaders were among the 35 killed Wednesday when the plane carrying Commerce Secretary Ron Brown crashed in Croatia. The State Department released the grim news Thursday, providing the official list of passengers and crew.
Also accompanying Brown on the economic development trip were Jim Lewek, a Central Intelligence Agency analyst; Lee Jackson of the Treasury Department; and Nathaniel Nash, The New York Times'Frankfurt bureau chief.
Two Croatians, the only non-Americans, also died -- Dragica Lendic Bebek, an interpreter, and Niksa Antonini, a photographer. Secretary of State Warren Christopher called the deaths an "immeasurable loss for America, the United States government, and for the families of those aboard the aircraft."
